Gamblin Artist Oils

Gamblin Artist Oil Colors are crafted by hand with the health and safety of artists, their work, and the environment in mind. True to historic working and restoration properties, yet safer and more permanent, they combine the best traditions of the past with the latest and safest in technical innovation, giving you as the artist the freedom to create without compromise to your well-being. 

Made with the finest grades of pigment available (yes, there are absolutely differences!), Gamblin Artist Oils have fabulous working properties, a rich body, and each color possesses unique characteristics in terms of texture, undertone, and tinting strength. The range of colors includes both historically accurate paints and modern, "synthetically" derived hues. For everything from traditional realism to contemporary abstraction, you'll find your ideal shades within the Gamblin line.

All Gamblin Artist Oil Paints are completely non-toxic when used as recommended, and with Gamblin Mediums and Solvents. Most are made with alkali-refined linseed oil as a binder, instead of the traditional cold-pressed linseed oil, which creates a strong, flexible paint film and yellows significantly less than traditional oil paints. Select colors use safflower oil as a binder. Not only are these vegetable oils completely non-toxic, they are commonly used in health and beauty products, so you can trust in their safety.
