This thesis was a creative investigation of mixed media using water soluble paints in order to further develop experimental techniques. Painting was limited to watercolor pigments, tempera, polymer tempera, acrylics, Elmer's glue, water, ink stick, or other materials that relate to water soluble media. The development of the problem helped the candidate to draw conclusions about the technique, development, application, and experimentation of this mixed media. This study was written so that one can understand the terminology and investigation procedures and use this as a departure point for further study using water soluble mixed media.
