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, the balanced range of 30 vibrant 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. Surface-dry between 5 and 7 days, and no colour shift from wet to dry.
As very much a beginner I am having such a lovely time using these. Water mixable oils make it all so much easier, and they are a delight to use, brushes and other equipment is easy to clean up after, and the big tubes are really good value. Sue Mansi (Bristol, United Kingdom) on 27 Sep 2018
Good colour range, great paint to use instead of standard oils and clean up is easy. I use as they come from the tube but in thin layers . Perfect for my technique Clare Buchta (Reading, United Kingdom) on 1 Dec 2019
I have long liked and used the Georgian range of water miscible (not soluble) paints. Oils are my favoured medium, and Georgian primaries have helped me learn the basics well. Water miscibility is a consideration for me as I can use less solvent in cleaning brushes, just paper squeeze then soap and water from the outset. Peter Rowley (Brixham, United Kingdom) on 14 May 2021
