The RevOILution Starts Here!

The revOILution starts with our health and the environment!

Both have never been as important as they are today. With Cobra oil paints, your workspace can now be free of harmful solvents. The only thing you need to dilute Cobra is water! Cobra oil paint contains the same colours, fine pigments and viscosity you know and love in traditional oil paint, but without the need for solvents.

Why do artists like Irma de Bruijne choose Cobra?

Irma from the Rijksmuseum’s Teekenschool explains,

“It was around that time, some 25 years ago, that I first visited Talens. I took a two-day course there and we were shown inside the paint factory. I was completely sold! I had expected to see conveyor belts, which are also great, but that was not the case at all. I saw how the paint was rubbed, what raw materials were used and the tremendous amount of manual work involved. When you see that, you also understand why paint is so costly and why this particular paint is so good. It was a real eye opener.”

She explains the three reasons they use Cobra Oils over traditional oil paints at the Rijksmuseum:

  1. The paint contains no solvents. It’s better for everyone’s health, especially since many people work indoors and may be allergic to solvents such as white spirit.
  2. It’s so nice to see the effect it has, that it’s just really good oil paint and that you get amazing results. It’s just a fantastic product.
  3. It is a material of today. At a time when the environment and health are very important, we have chosen to use this modern oil paint.
