c) The ingredients must be triple milled to produce a fine workable texture
Cobra water soluble oil paints are made by Royal Talens a company located in the Netherlands that have been producing art supplies for centuries. Many famous artists have used Talens paint in its time, Van Gogh, Amsterdam, and Rembrandt have all contributed to the brands success. While you may not be of the same caliber of these great masters, it is exciting that we in this modern day can enjoy these art materials too.
Fairly new to the modern day art supplies market Talens produces Cobra water soluble artists oil paints. These paints are perfect for painting indoors, outside, in your studio, classrooms, and even at home. Not only do you get to enjoy the freedom to paint anywhere you want with these oils but you also get to enjoy all of the qualities of traditional oil paints with some majour benefits. The elimination of harsh solvents being just one of them, no longer will you have to worry about hiding away to paint with all the windows open for ventilation while you work. You will be able to spend time with friends and family while painting at the same time. No more indoor air pollution that can cause harmful effects to your health or that of your loved ones. This also makes for extremely easy clean-ups as well since all you will ever need is a little soap and water to clean your brushes and other surfaces.
Cobra water soluable paints are no doubt one of the best water based oils available in the art supplies market today and their colour range is exceptional. It has a uniformed drying time and slight sheen to it when dry and can be easily varnished with either an acrylic or oil based varnish. Cobra’s buttery, creamy texture can be applied with all types of paint brushes, palette knives and colour shapers. Each colour will retain its shape, painterly strokes will retain their retention and textured peaks created from the likes of a palette knife will remain so.
There are 70 colours in the Cobra Talens paint range. 13 transparent colours, 7 semi-transparent colours, 24 semi-opaque colours and 26 opaque colours and every colour has been tested for its lightfastness.
