I use the water mixable oils in middle school elective (7 & 8th grade). It
gives the students something different to use besides acrylics which I use
consistently with all of my other classes. The elective is a class of 16
students who choose to be in art for a double period once a week. The water
based oils work quite well, they keep them for the week in a covered pallet
and they can easily be reconstituted with very little waste. Sometimes the
paints stay workable on their canvas for several days. The ones I have are
Windsor Newton Artisan water mixable oil colour---these are a good student
quality alternative.
