Building up a Cobra oil painting

If you want to build up an oil painting in multiple layers, the same rules apply as with other oil paint: the 'fat over lean' method.

You build up your painting from lean to increasingly fat. You can only apply the next layer once the previous layer is so dry that it will no longer dissolve: dry to the touch.
