Waterborne alkyd paints are oil based that clean up with soap and water and have properties and benefits of both oil and latex.
Water soluble oil offers a greater convenience and increased accessibility. It is ideal to people with allergies, home studios, students and those who have been avoiding oils due to the toxic solvents.
Like traditional oils, waterborne alkyd paints must dry through oxidation – absorbing oxygen through the air. Once it dries, it is just like any other oil painting and should be treated as much. It smells great like any other traditional oil. The fast drying mediums allow for plenty of time for blending but still make over-painting easier and faster.
There are a lot of reasons why water soluble oil is more convenient; it produces fresh, bright, strong color and it is much easier to avoid making muddy color, it is easy to clean up and those with limited or no experience with traditional oils adjust to water soluble oils more quickly.
