Holbein Water Soluble " DUO "
(Oil color that melts with water) Water-soluble oil color DUO…A total of 100 colors
DUO is the water-soluble oil color that is admixed with a surface active agent.
DUO allows painting & cleaning with water without compromising high pigment quarity and archival characteristics that serious artists are accustomed to.
Diluting, painting, and cleaning with water creates a safer studio and classroom atmosphere. DUO is a water soluble oil color offering rich hue, high chroma, and is ideally suited for artists wishing to avoid the use of harsh solvents.

  2. It dries faster than does oil color

  3. The colorful expression is possible.
    Lumping and the touch of a brush are feasible like a watercolor painting. Also it is possible to draw a thin line by dissolving it with water, so even the expression like hatching of tempera is possible.
