They look like su to me?I hope someone cn help me.I paint acrylic paintings I was self taught so I know nothing about oil and water painting.thank you all for reading this.PS" my friend died in March of this year so I could not ask her and since her death I quit painting.

They are not the same as watercolor, no. Water soluble refers to the clean-up, I think. As in soap and water versus needing a mineral spirit or paint thinner to clean.

It should be noted that I have been known to be wrong every so often, though, so we should wait for more input, lol!

I did a search and several things came up. Of course, some were for stores, but it appears they can be used in a similar manner. Go to Google or Yahoo and type in water soluble oil pastels. I just checked a couple but there were some tutorial type pages and blogs. One said they should be used on moistened paper and the other referenced a water pen. HTH a little.

Betsy is wrong. In my experience, she has never been known to be wrong. LOL
ps. I agree with her, they are not the same.
