How to get Oil based paint of your skin?

A good way to remove Oil based paint from your skin once it has dried, is to rub oil over the paint, this can be olive oil or vegetable oil it doesn’t matter. Once you’ve done that scrub the paint away with warm soap, warm water and a cloth. If there is any paint remaining just repeat the process and try again until it has all gone.

What are the advantages of Oil based paint?

Oil based paints are very durable and can withstand contact and wear and tear a lot better than Water based paints, meaning they’re less likely to chip over time. They also create a glossy finish, which means that any spillages or mess on a surface painted with oil based paint can just be wiped away, without effecting the appearance of that surface.

What are the disadvantages of Oil based paint?

Oil based paints are typically more expensive than water based paints upfront, making them less ideal for people on a budget. They also have a strong smell which can be unpleasant for some people especially if they have used an oil based paint for something in their bedroom. Lastly they take a lot longer to dry making it difficult for anyone with a strict time schedule.

What is Oil based paint used for?

Oil based paints are used on surfaces that receive a lot of contact, and where they aren’t planning on changing the colour any time soon. This is because they are highly durable, and it is easy to wipe of any marks on them. Oil based paints are often used on interior doors, cabinets, and furniture as they all receive more contact than other surfaces within a house.
