Holbein Duo Basic Set 952 includes:
- 11 x 15ml assorted water-soluble oil colours
- 1 x 20ml white water-soluble oil.
Holbein Duo-Aqua Oil is an artist quality water-mixable oil paint made with water-soluble linseed oil. It has all of the handling characteristics of traditional oil paints but can be thinned or cleaned up with just water.
These paints have a uniform drying time and will hold brushmarks and dry to a lustrous sheen like traditional oils.
Because of its water-solubility, Holbein DUO Aqua Oil offers the opportunity for mixed media results which would be unavailable in a traditional oil palette. For example, DUO can be mixed with waterbased metallic, pearl and interference colours as well as watercolour, gouache or acrylic paints.
If you wish to alter the consistency, drying time, and transparency of your Duo Aqua Watermixable Oils, you can use Holbein's Duo Aqua Mediums.
For the original Duo-Aqua range, Holbein avoided using heavy metal pigments. For painters who can't live without their Cadmiums and Cobalts, these colours are now available and are known as Holbein Duo-Aqua Elite Colours. They have the same working properties as the original Duo-Aqua colours.
Founded in 1900 in Osaka, Japan, Holbein Art Supplies has built a reputation for being one of the world’s most respected makers of professional grade watercolor paints, oil paints, acrylic paints, colored pencils and many other art supplies.
