Welcome to dickblick
If you love the creamy feel and rich appearance of classic oil paints, but don't like toxic solvents or tedious cleanup, try Daniel Smith Water-Soluble Oils. These vibrant paints are packed with the same premium pigments as Daniel Smith Original Oils, but use a special modified linseed oil binder that cleans up with ordinary water. Made by hand in Seattle, Washington, they have the most finely ground pigments of any water-soluble color line.
Daniel Smith Water-Soluble Oil Colors look identical to their traditional counterparts and offer excellent brushability, a beautiful surface sheen, and uniform drying times. Their color strength is outstanding, even when mixed with Titanium White. For thinning, use water or Daniel Smith Water-Soluble Linseed Oil (or another brand of modified linseed oil). Please note that when you use water, the resulting surface sheen will have a slightly more matte appearance.
Daniel Smith Water-Soluble Oil Colors are ideal for the following artists:

Good price on best water soluble oils available
from NY State
The Daniel Smith Titanium white has greater mixing and covering properties than other water soluble white oils I have used. I will try other colors to compare, hopefully with the same results. After much shopping on line, I determined Blick pricing and shipping is hard to beat.

First Time Using Water-Soluble Oil Paint
from Los Angeles, CA
It's been years since I've painted with oil-based paints, so it's difficult to compare these water-soluble paints to the oil-based type.I did not give them five stars yet because I've just started using them and my main concern is the consistency on the canvas. I'm not certain, but they seem to be a bit thinner than regular oils, but, as I said, it's been years.I read all the reviews so I understand not to use water as a thinner, only water-soluble linseed oil.I'm also concerned about having enough gloss, which I really want.I paint in small detail and sometimes it's difficult getting the paint to apply in a tiny spot.But I definitely like the ease of clean-up. That alone is worth using these paints.I will review again after I've tried these paints for a while.

Definite Favorite Water Soluble Oils
from Vista, CA
My favorite water soluble oils are definitely Daniel Smith. They are the closest to traditional oils that I have tried and I've tried Holbein, Winsor & Newton, and Van Gogh (which have now changed their name). Even their painting mediums work much better than the other brands. They have many single pigment colors that make beautiful mixes rather than mud. My only complaint is they still do not offer as many pigments as I would like. Otherwise superb!
