Why Use Water Soluble Oil Paints?

Water-soluble oil paints (also known as water-mixable oils or water-miscible oils) are oil paints that can be diluted and cleaned with water, rather than solvents. Paint solvent-free and eliminate the need for harsh chemicals and toxic solvents with water-mixable oils. Easy cleanup, no solvent needed and they also dry faster in general than traditional oils. They are thus great for travel, or underpainting with "lean" layers.

Artists have been using Jerry’s Artarama for over 50 years for better supplies at a great value. We carry an extensive selection of water-soluble oils including oil paint, watercolor paint, brushes for oil painting, Oil painting mediums, Goache paint and more.

 

Understanding Water-Mixable Oil Paint

Eliminate the need for harsh chemicals and toxic solvents! These innovative oils are made using a modified oil binder that allows them to be thinned and cleaned up with water, making them a convenient alternative to traditional oils. See our article on Water Mixable Oil Paint vs. Traditional Oil Paint

 

Water-soluble oil paints have been developed to emulate traditional oil color and work well for:

  • Oil painters who are sensitive to or want to avoid exposure to solvents such as mineral spirits or turpentine.
  • Easy cleanup, no solvent needed and they also dry faster in general than traditional oils
  • Students and teachers in schools and colleges where the use of oil paint is prohibited because of solvents.
  • Artists working in a shared studio space where the build up of solvent levels could lead to a harmful concentration of vapors and an unpleasant odor.
  • Artists who work within a small home environment and wish to reduce the odor of oil painting.
  • Artists that travel can transport these paints on airplanes subject to the approval of the airline.
