I love water-soluble oils, and artisan produce the best value ones. However I have found them to be stiffer than other more expensive brands, and often I have to soften them with water before use. I'm not sure what the green is doing there - perhaps a black or burnt sienna would have been more useful. Andy Walker (Zurgena, Spain) on 12 Jan 2014
