Depending on the consistency...use a hair dryer? I've done it with acrylic paint but I don't know if it would wreck an oil painting..

a brain storrm on drying oil paint http://answers.yahoo.com/question/in...3164255AAx2PNF

You'd need to know the mechanism by which it dries...which I don't !

I remember a friend putting a painting in the bottom of an oven once. Sounds a bit risky to me but apparently it worked.

I'd say use a hairdryer (mostly for the air, not the heat, so don't hold it really close)
Don't have any personal experience, but I think the paint might crack if you heated the outer layers of paint very rapidly (such as holding a hairdryer really close) - especially if it's been frozen???!!!

Good luck!

Well you thin oil paint with turps or white spirit. You could always try to flash off the thinners with a blow torch?

I sometimes do this when I want automotive paint to flash off quickly.

I have done an oil painting too , I thought there might be a product that could be sprayed over to speed up the drying process???
