Where can I get turpentine.  I need it to create a medium for oil painting.  Have tried Amazon MX but get all tangled putting in  my Mexico address and they say undeliverable without giving a reason - I am confused.

Found some on mercado libre but they want 1000 pesos for a 4 oz. bottle which is beyond ridiculous.

I was told that "petroleo" which is sold by the liter in hardware stores like Jara's is turpentine. I use it to soak wood in the chiminea in lieu of other flammable substances. It may not work for your purposes but it's cheap to test out.

I ask for aguaras when I need turpentine.  I get it in paint stores.  It is very cheap.  I have used it when painting with oil paints and when I use house paints.
