Thinner: Cover Story paints use water as a thinner so they are water-based paints.

Most paints use a variety of plastic materials as binders. For us plasticity is a fundamental choice. That is why Cover Story paints use renewable and plant based castor oil as a binder.

 Cover Story full-matt paints have CS signature matt finish with low light reflectance. 

Cleanup: It's recommended you clean painting supplies immediately after use, as the paint will stick to the brushes as it dries. Cover Story paints are water soluble, which means that water alone is enough to clean the equipment. Read more about cleaning here.
