I cleaned them previously in water, then in sunflower oil and finally in dish washing fluid . Also, I can easily clean pure acrylic from glass of water by exposing dried acrylic into water. But acrylic-oil blend dries much water-proof and more adhesive. To remove such blend, I tried hot water and then removed it mechanically with cotton rag.

Is 80 percent the cut off Mark? Those non polar molecules will be rebelling at some stage

Most interesting is adhesive properties of blend. I can easy remove dried oil paint from my plastic palette. Acrylic paint I can remove even more easily. But when I tried to remove a two weeks dried blend.. You can break palette knife doing that. I used good knife, with wooden handle and strong sharp blade and it works.

Fortunately Alex; I have a full set of Holbein Aqua Duo Water mix oils and when I add acrylics the brushes wash out very easily with warm soapy water.
I find your method with "real" oils and acrylics really interesting.

Yes, Acrylic will blend with Duo WMO easily. Holbein proposed to do that mixture!
I am looking for a method to use acrylic for impasto with oil painting because oil paint is wrong stuff for that.

Yes i have a 'specialist canvas scraper knife' the metal is an unknown compound. I believe it may have come down in a meteorite that the Egyptians used to carve a burial knife for Tutenkhamun. A gift from the gods they called it. In fact it was just Iron which was rarer than Gold to those Egyptians. Hence it was buried with him.

They also used natural Desert Glass as a gem stone.The origin of Desert glass is uncertain. Meteoritic origins have long been considered possible, and recent research links the glass to impact features, such as zircon-breakdown, vaporized quartz and meteoritic metals. This glass also used to make knives.

Re: "Paint impression." Oil-acrylic on canvas.

I VERY LOVE your colorful painting! Can I have it for my wall?

(For my acrylics, I always use the Atelier acrylics (which allow my brushes to survive (I can clean them every 45 minutes instead of every 2 minutes )))

I'm pretty confident your painting won't yellow over time. (I've had some yellowing (whilst abusing Bill Martin's linseed medium))

Utmost blessings!

Hi, Doc! Thank you. I will put my painting on sun light to take a better picture to put it on your wall.
My (not Atelier!) acrylics dries with a terrible speed! I don't have blue acrylic paint, I took my oil phthalo and mixed into Acrylic White for that. Blue color is a pure acrylic-oil.
My painting has linseed oil drying smell, so I suspect it can yellow over time, but I hope it will yellow less than traditional oil painting!
BTW, Bill use his medium mainly as a thin couch. It can't yellow much when applied as a lubricant for paints.

Thank you! I used acrylic paint with the name "Green Mid" *** with some white, raw sienna acrylic and Strontium Yellow oil paint. Finally, I bought a tube of Acrylic Yellow lemon paint. No pigment listed, but I was pretty sure it is PY3.

Re: "Paint impression." Oil-acrylic on canvas.

neat Alex, WC but doesn't this belong in the mixed media forum , we are only about oil painting here and acrylic mixing is strictly forbidden!

now try oils with watercolor, be sure to add some pure alcohol and detergent for a medium!

I use acrylic only as an extender for oil paint. To expand artists' oil paint with artists' acrylic to reach student grade quality. Mixed media people do not like to use artistic materials, they often use crappy non-archival things. Old newspapers, dried grasshoppers, modelling waste..

In the other hand, paint manufacturers and some artists often use Shoe's polish ingredients like Bee's Wax; Fumed silica; Turpentine and Stearates mixed with oil paint. Odd Nerdrum lost 116 painting when his Shoe polish oil painting medium melted inside oil paint films. But nobody proposed him to go to Shoemaker's forum.
I can agree with Bill to stay away from waxes!

The same for Calcium Carbonate, People use it a lot, not for fresco, but for oil painting mediums And they refused me to add chewing gum to the oil paint, Sid!
