Similar to traditional oil paints, water-mixable oils contain a modified oil binder that allows them to be diluted and cleaned up with water. They have a texture and a drying time akin to those of traditional oils, and they can be applied using the same techniques. But unlike traditional oils, they can be manipulated with water to vary their consistency and transparency: the more water you mix into the paint, the quicker it will dry and the more opaque it will appear. However, once dry, the paint is water resistant. The greatest benefit to water-mixable oils is their ease of use. Unlike traditional oils that require hazardous solvents, water-mixable oils can be used safely in classrooms and spaces with limited ventilation, and they can be cleaned up with soap and water. Our picks below will help you find the best water-mixable oil paint for your project needs.
