Max is one of the first water mixable oils. A professional line of 59 colors, Grumbacher Max water mixable oil colors are solvent free and thin and clean up with water, but maintain the chroma, workability and lightfastness like a traditional oil color. Max oils employ the same finely ground pigments and superior quality linseed oil as our renown Pre-tested paints, and dry at a comparable rate. Max colors will retain water miscible properties when intermixed with traditional oil colors or oil painting mediums, as long as the artists uses at least 70% Max color and no more than 30% of regular oil colors or mediums. This paint formula eliminates the use of harsh solvents and is ideal for those sensitive to chemical fumes. Made in the USA.
