Can YOU tell the difference between water-mixable oils and traditional oil paints? In this Prove It!, Mikey G sets out to see if people of various degrees of familiarity with art supplies can actually make out a discernible difference between two paintings, both exactly the same except for the paints used. Arist Dan Nelson painted two identical paintings, using either Cobra Water-Mixable Oils or Rembrandt Extra-Fine Artists' Oil Colors. What does Mikey G find out? The results may surprise you, but you'll have to watch to find out for yourself!
