Developed by Holbein in Japan to offer the same high pigment quality and archival characteristics of Holbein's Artists' Oil line while allowing soap-and-water cleanup, Duo Aqua Oils are characterized by rich hues, high chroma, excellent resistance to light, and 17 "Elite" colors that contain heavy metal pigments such as cadmiums and cobalts.
Holbein Duo Aqua Oil Colors can be diluted with water, which creates a "melting" effect. A unique surface active agent helps them dry faster than traditional oils, allowing work to be completed in a shorter period of time. Holbein Duo Aqua Oils can be mixed with acrylics, watercolors, gouache, and oils, to create a variety of effects and make possible a variety of techniques. They can even be mixed with metallic and pearlescent watercolors to create colors that do not normally exist in oil color palettes. Duo Aqua Oil Colors are no longer water-soluble when mixed with more than 30% traditional oil color.
Because they clean up with soap and water instead of harsh solvents, Duo Aqua Oil Colors are safer than traditional oils for use in the studio or classroom.
