Description

This Cobra Artists Water Mixable Oil Colour gift set contains 10 tube colours and the essentials required to get started in Oil painting – with a twist.

Cobra is a new type of oil colour from Royal Talens, a range of water mixable oil colours which do not require the use of any hazardous solvents, in contrast to using conventional oil colour.

Cobra offers the same working properties and effects, just like using oil, but the colour can be diluted and cleaned with water – making for a far more convenient experience, without having to compromise in quality. 

This set contains:

  • 10 x 40ml tubes of Cobra water mixable oil colour
  • 1 x 75ml Cobra Oil Painting medium
  • 2 x Cobra Flat brushes (sizes 4 & 10)
  • a palette dipper

Q&A (3)
Q What are the benefits of painting oil as oppose to acrylic or watercolour?
A

All three types of painting offer very different experiences. Oil paints boast beautiful colour depth and blending properties and their long drying time allows the painter the flexibility to make changes over longer periods of time than when painting with acrylic or watercolour. Oil painting is one of the more traditional art practices and holds historical significance, the oldest discovered oil painting dating back as far as the 7th century.

Q What surfaces do oil paints work best on?
A

Canvas is a popular surface for painters using oil colour. You can also paint onto oil paper, wooden panels or non-absorbent materials such as metal or glass. All surfaces will need to be correctly prepared before using with oil colour to ensure the paint grips to the surface, as well as avoid any risk of the oil base of the paint seeping through the surface. You can ensure that your surface is safe to use with oil paint is by priming it beforehand with gesso.

Q Are Cobra paints heavy body?
A

These aren't heavy body but they can be thickened with mediums such as beeswax. However, this might effect their drying time and how water soluable they are.

11th November 2016 Reviewed by Linda Forrest I would recommend this to artists who like to work away from home without carrying bottles of spirits and oil around with them. the quality of the paints is lovely for any artist, beginner or advanced. There is a perfect range of colours in them which I will list now because I could not find such info on the site. Titanium white, permanent yellow light, permanent orange, pyrrole red,permanent red violet light, ultramarine, king's blue, permanent green light, burnt sienna, ivory black. Washing your brushes with washing up liquid after is so easy too.

26th October 2016 Reviewed by Celia Brookes Never used this product before, always used oil based or acrylic. I found them really good, as unlike acrylic the paint kept wet just like oil paint but without the smell and so easy to just wash my brushes with water afterwards.

2nd July 2015 Reviewed by Brian Barsby Water mixable oil is a new venture for me however I have tried them out and I am impressed with the quality. The ease of cleaning - just watersoap - and the lack of the need for spirit-based mediums make them ideal for me. I would recommend these paints to anyone who has an interest in painting with oils.

11th February 2015 Reviewed by Rozali Abch you can tell it's good quality oil paint due to its thickness and it's amazing lightness when you had your white spirt or oil or even water. Truly an amazing product I see myself buying in the near future when I'm no longer broke haha. A product that is a must try since the offer is something you rarely get
