Jim: I'm glad to hear that you were basically happy with the Cobra WMOs. I expect my problem has more to do with my inexperience with the WMOs and it having been about 7 years since I painted at all. As far as the separation and runny oil, I had that happen with my tube of Cobra Permanent Lemon Yellow. However, I don't consider it a problem, since I like loose oil paints and just wipe it up.

Jim,
Thank you very much for this thorough narrative on your experiences with Cobra. We're all lucky to have your insights and understanding, and I'm impressed with the way that you're going about testing the drying times and comparing pigments. You have a natural curiosity that I think many artists share. I think you'll enjoy using some of the auxiliaries that we offer, as these will certainly enhance your experience.

Having lived in that area of the country for a few years, I'm very excited to see some more of the works that you create. Please keep sharing!

All the best,

Hi All;

I've made a larger version of the color chart available on the website so that the brand and color names can be viewed (see link in signature). Should have thought of that in the first place .

Dayle; In the studio with the palette flat the oil in the Yellow Ochre isn't a problem for me either. I keep the pochade box palette at an angle.

Thanks Kyle. Another color that I would like to see in the Cobra line is Alizarin Crimson. When I asked you about Indigo earlier you indicated there were no plans to add it because the pigments don't meet your quality standards. Is Alizarin in the same boat?

Regards;

Jim, genuine indigo is a dye that fades quickly. No company should be selling that as a pigment. Cobra's Prussian blue PB27 might be the closest match.

Alizarin PR83 (aka "madder lake") is notorious for claims of being poorly lightfast, fading or darkening overtime. MAX and Duo Alizarin is PR83, and also have "hue" substitutes, which is what most companies offer. Cobra's "madder lake" is actually PR264 (diketo pyrrole,) which is a close match and described to be more lightfast.

In love with my Cobra WMOs again. On WetCanvas, Titanium recommended a medium of 1 part walnut oil to 2 parts stand oil for WMOs. Several people tried it and fell in love with it. I decided to try it, but for the bottom layer I added a little bit of distilled water. WOW, did that make a difference! Great medium for these WMOs and used a little bit of Artisan with it and found they worked good with that medium too. Now, I'm really sold on Cobras again.
It's going to take me a while to practice using oils after I've been away so long, but now I realize it's just a matter of time and practice, and things should start looking good again. Thanks for your encouragement in keeping going on WMOs. If it hadn't been for you guys, I probably would have given up.

BTW, I used Cobra's Glazing Medium for the Stand Oil. I don't know if that's exactly the same thing, but it worked great for me.
