Welcome to dickblick
Grumbacher's Max Oil Colors are identical to conventional oil colors, with one major difference — Max Oils thin and clean up with water. With Max Oils, there is no need for special brush cleaners, turpentine, or mineral spirits.
Max Grumbacher's professional-quality, water mixable oil colors are made from the same pigments and linseed oil as Grumbacher Pre-Tested Oils, and they have comparable drying time. Max Grumbacher colors can be intermixed with any other oil colors or oil painting mediums, and they can be varnished after 6 months. Use at least 70% Max color, and no more than 30% of regular oil colors or mediums to retain the water miscible properties of Max Oil Colors.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

I will never go back to regular oils. using them for 16 year
from Nyack, NY
Comments about Grumbacher Max Artists' Water Miscible Oil Colors:
They handle somewhere's in between oils and acrylics, which I like. No more headaches from sniffing reg. oils. An older arist told me 20 years ago to switch from reg. oils because he was sick frok the toxins that had accumulated in him. He died soon after and I continue to use the non toxic oils.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best buy with best results
from Hubbard, OH
Love painting with these oils. Easy to apply. The consistency gives me full control of blending colors. The clean up afterwards is quick and easy. I love the finish piece with the warmth the colors bring to life.
I would buy this product again and again excellent product!

I like the clear color I get with these. They mix beautifully. They are the closest to pure oil paints that I have found.

The flesh color is way to thick
By The Old Painter
Overall all colors are of good quality...I happy with them... except the flesh color it is way too thick I practically have to break the tube to the paint out...then use a bunch of oil to thin it out to be useable. I don't know why that's the only color I have a problem with.
Love this brand
from Orange County, CA
I use it on canvas and glass. It's properties are glowing and brilliant.
from Post Falls, Idaho
New to water miscible, but so far I'm loving the Grumbacher. As always, the price and service from Dick Blick is top notch.
Love water oils!

Grumbacher Maxx Oils
from Charleston, SC
Love the rich colors, this paint is pigment packed. Love that it is low odor. Downfall of this product is that some tubes (even of the same color) have inconsistent texture.
