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 love water based oils, especially Grumbacher.
from New Braunfels TX
Comments about Grumbacher Max Artists' Water Miscible Oil Colors:
Grumbacher water-based oils have a buttery texture that can be brushed smoothly and evenly on gessobord. It's easy to clean off the brushes with soap and water. Unfortunately, Grumbacher doesn't have as many colors to choose from as other brands. I hope they will expand in this area in the near future.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I would purchase this oil paint always as my first choice
By Happy Painter
from Carson, CA
I paint landscapes on canvas. the Grumbacher MAX is creamier and has excellent color. Blick prices are a great savings.
My favorite color!
One of the best yellows in water miscible oils. Use it to make good greens, for glazing, and for a sunlit dash.
I like the consistency of this product

I like to oil paint with this product because of the easy and chemical free clean up.

Easy to use

I've used Grumbacher Max for many years painting wildlife and pet portrait commissions. I am very happy with the ease of cleanup and absence of irritating fumes.
