Artisan - Water Mixable Oils
Winsor & Newton produce Artisan Water Mixable Oils. Artisan has the same rich creamy quality & gives the same results as normal oil paints. They are made from linseed & sunflower oils that have been modified so they can mix & clean up with water. The drying rates are the same as normal oils. They can be mixed with normal oils but from then on will require Turpentine to clean up. Artisan are ideal for artists who want to avoid exposure to solvents or who work in a shared studio space.
