Mixable Oil Paint
Oil paint has perhaps made the largest contribution to the development of art as a visual form. With Cobra Study water mixable oil colors, you can get the same splendid results and natural gloss as traditional oil paints. Cobra colors dry relatively quickly and because they can be mixed with water, you no longer have to use solvents such as mineral spirits. This month we are excited to bring you an assortment of paints and tools to help you explore the art of oil painting!

This solvent-free, water mixable oil paint gives the same great result as traditional oil paint including even brush strokes and long-lasting fade resistant color. This starter set includes six 20ml tubes of solvent-free, water mixable oil paints.
