Water mixable oil paint (also called "water soluble") is a modern variety of oil paint engineered to be thinned and cleaned up with water, thus making it possible to avoid using chemicals such as turpentine, whose fumes may be harmful if inhaled (making it necessary to take precautions, such as using the solvent in a ventilated environment). Water miscible oil paint can be mixed and applied using the same techniques as traditional oil-based paint, but while still wet it can be effectively removed from brushes, palettes, and rags with ordinary soap and water.

Water Mixable oil paint seems perplexing to many people, I was a bit of a skeptic to start with - but since having used this paint I can see it's advantages and was pretty amazed with its closeness in feel to traditional oil paint. Water mixable oils are soluble in water due to some nifty engineering done to eradicate the necessity for harsh chemicals like turps for cleaning up paint. It is still an oil paint, except that the oil has been transformed to be able to dilute in water. I personally don't mind using traditional oils paints as I rarely use turps and keep my studio ventilated, but I can see that for some artists it would make a world of difference - particularly cleaning up with water (Tips by Art Shed's Tom)
