Thanks Jim,

I'm still working on the sample and trying to use up other brands before ordering more, but I appreciate the input.

Judy

Here's a question for those of you using Cobra paints:
I'm working with Artisan now, but have heard good things here about Cobra.
I see that I can order the paints, and Cobra medium, but what about thinner, to paint the first wash layer? Do I use their Cobra paste, or do I try to make do with using water as a thinner?
(I don't see Cobra offering a brand of thinner)

You use water to start out. It's great.

Hi Susan, thanks!
I checked out their site after I posted the question, and their videos say that you can add water to the medium also, which I guess would act to make it more lean. That would make it suitable to use as a thinner.
I am always cautious to add more than a tiny bit of water to water mixable paint, thinking using that too much water would break down the emulsifiers and destroy the integrity of the oil paint.
hmmm.

I might thin it with water initially when I'm starting out, but later on I use walnut oil. It is smooth and never sticky. I have tried other mediums - even Holbeins's linseed that goes with their watersoluble oil paint (Duo), and I've not been happy. Finding out about walnut oil has been my answer for a nice medium. I'm sold. I love it!

I've used Cobra WMOs with water, and it doesn't seem to be a problem at all. I will say that the paint is more dull when it drys, compared to using oil, but if you're going to paint over it or varnish it then it doesn't matter. The water doesn't make it sticky like it does with other WMOs. I like them a lot, but if you're used to Winsor Newton, Cobra is a more fluid and transparent paint.
