DUO has taken all the handling qualities and the buttery feel of Holbein Artist Oil Color and made it safer and easier to use. Duo eliminates the odor of solvents in the studio by allowing you to clean brushes, palette, and workspace with soap and water. Because of its versatility, the possibilities for special techniques and effects using Duo are limited only by one’s imagination. A product of the Holbein color laboratory, a world-class facility, DUO is produced by the addition of a surfactant to alter the characteristics of linseed oil by making it water-soluble.
