Georgian Water Mixable Oil Colours offer artists the possibility of experiencing oil painting without the need for solvent-based mediums. An alternative to traditional oils, this range of colours can be thinned, mixed, and washed using water and as such is ideal for use indoors and in a classroom environment. All Georgian Water Mixable Oil colours offer high levels of lightfastness, pigment load, and durability. The viscosity and smooth texture of the colours out of the tube mirror traditional oil colours and can be used for impasto techniques, or thinned down with water they can create wash effects similar to watercolours.
Just like conventional oils you still need to remember the fat over lean rule, you still need to let the painting dry completely (often 6 months) before you varnish with regular picture varnish for protection, you cannot mix with acrylic but can paint over acrylic. You can mix aqua oils with regular oils but as you add more you will lose the ability to clean up without solvent. Just like any other new medium, it will take you a while to get used to. Their characteristics change dramatically with small amounts of mediums, including water, and that may be the most important part to practice with. We love the quick and easy clean-up!
