Do you love the working time of oils but hate the toxicity of solvent thinners? Water-mixable oils might be the perfect balance for you. These are real oil paints that can be mixed with water, low odor mediums or natural oils. If. You work in a space without good ventilation or are sensitive to solvent thinners and turpentine, water mixable oils can give you a fume-free painting experience! This course covers materials, beginner basics and oil painting methods.
Please arrive on time to class. This class is live and interactive. Recordings will not be shared.
