Salutations, gentlefolk !

Got tired of doing blacklining, details, etc, in acrylic, with a small brush that needed to be washed out every 15 seconds… So got myself a tube of 'Grumbacher Max Ivory Black / Cleans With Water / Vehicle – Alkali Refined Linseed Oil', hoping this'll make fine-line painting easier.

Anybody who's used both acrylics and alkyd / 'water-soluble oils' is invited to put their $0.02 USD in here.

Thanks very much!

For lining I use acrylic ink with retarder. No issues with drying. Comes out a bit glossy but I varnish matte anyway
