PostSubject: Just Introducing Myself   Sat Mar 09, 2013 7:04 pm

Hi, I just found this forum today. I've used water soluble oils in the past but gave them up for regular oils. I've never figured out a really easy and non-toxic way to clean up after conventional oils so I'm reconsidering. I have the book, Painting with Water Soluble Oils, and it suggests some solutions to some of my previous complaints. I have Duo Aqua oils and today I tried to mix some of my paint with W&N Artisan fast drying medium and the medium didn't mix into the oils at all. Everything just gumed up. I'm wondering if W&N Artisan medium is only to be used with W&N Artisan water soluble oils and no other brands. Hate to throw the bottle out but it seems to be useless. It's great to find this forum and I hope we can help each other out. Very Happy

Glad you have joined us. I never use fast drying medium but I have uses W/N thinner with several brands of paint without problem. Perhaps others in the forum will have an answer for you. I love the Duo Aqua oils, BTW.

Hope you take the time to browse and share some of your experiences.

Welcome Seashell,

Duo Aqua Oils are the best. I have not tried using fast drying medium. Let's see if someone else can add something to your question.

If you are using Duo Aqua with Walnut oil, then please do ask, I would gladly give you pointers and what to do and what to avoid. But nothing can beat trying it for yourself.

Good Luck! and we would love to see some of your work.

Welcome from me too. And, unfortunately, I can't answer your question either as I've never tried the fast drying medium. I use both the Aqua Oils and Lukas Berlins and am just now figuring out how to work with the WSOs. I hope you find a solution to working with the medium soon.

I'd like to see some of your paintings also.
