Cobra Painting Paste is a colorless medium that can be mixed with water-mixable oil paint in any ratio. The paste is as thick as Cobra Water Mixable Oils and can, therefore, be described as a water-mixable oil paint without pigment. Use it to increase the paint's volume for impasto techniques with no color change. The more paste that is added, the more transparent the paint becomes. Depending on the type of pigment, this will not be visible in thicker layers. Cobra Painting Paste can also be used to decrease the color intensity of paints, which is particularly important in the alla prima technique when colors with a highly divergent color intensity are being mixed with one another in a painting. The addition of painting paste to a stronger color makes the color's intensity less prominent. Always mix Cobra Water Mixable Oils and Cobra Painting paste with a painting knife.
