Water Mixable Oil Painting

I've been wanting to try oil painting for a while and since I usually paint with watercolor and acrylics, I thought it would be easiest to start with water mixable oil paints.Water soluble oils allow you to clean the brushes with water and soap instead of using a toxic solvent like turpentine. You can also dilute water soluble oil paints with water (adding a little bit of paint at a time), but it's recommended to use linseed oil instead. Water soluble oil paints should dry faster than traditional oils, but when you add linseed oil, it will slow down the drying time. Read on or watch the video for my first impressions on water mixable oil painting.
