As fine a water-mixable oil paint as you will find, at a fraction of the price! We have worked tirelessly with paint specialists to develop our new water-mixable oil paint range. Aqua Oil's range consists of 40 vibrant colours that mix well with other water-mixable oils. Use with water-mixable oil mediums to extend colour and increase transparency. Jackson's Aqua Oils are free from solvent odour and kind to your hands. Ideal for those who'd like to avoid paint fumes and harsh solvents without having to compromise the quality of their materials. We urge you to give them a try!
Comparing this with the other two water mixable oils sold here, Artisan & Holbein Aqua : Consistency is similar to the Aqua, the Artisan being slightly shorter (butter on a warm day against butter on a cool day !). Tinted with Titanium White to a mid-tone it appears as a cool stony grey when set against the warmer brown of the Artisan, even more so against the even warmer Holbein. I use it often this way, treating it as a different colour altogether to the other two. Adding a little Burnt Sienna brings it up to the warmth of the other two brands. Covers smoothly and dries quickly. Five months in with this tube and two-thirds used, consistency is maintained with no separation.
