The theory of using the baby oil is the same as is shown in this tutorial, just using a different solvent. Gamsol is a name brand of odorlesss mineral spirits (sometimes referred to here as OMS) that is used by some artists. I use a generic OMS that I bought in the paint section at Walmart. Same stuff.

The tutorial above doesn't have a video, but here's one I found on youtube... my connection is super slow and it's not all loading for me, but she is using mineral oil, which is the same thing as baby oil without the scent. I like to add more color after I've blended, to deepen shadows - I may have to do a video just comparing different kinds of blending. Hmmm... wheels turning.
