Default Holbein Duo Aqua

Hi all,
Just putting it out there that the Holbein Duo Aqua blends real nicely with egg yolk.
What I'm blending at the moment is yolk+sun thickened sunflower oil + water. Works well, blends well, sets up fairly quickly. (In the future I'll probably use stand oil). It, so far, is giving an oil paint look with an et sheen. I'll keep you posted, (however slow I am at posting progress).
Give it a try.
Btw, At first, I just used the Duo titanium white. Mixing gouache and watercolors or dry pigments as desired. I mention this because you can experiment with little forward expense.
Let me know of your results.
