Welcome to dickblick
Gamblin Artist's Oil Colors are crafted by hand with the well-being of artists, their work, and the environment in mind. True to historic working properties, yet safer and more permanent, they combine the best traditions of the past with the latest technical innovations, giving you the freedom to create without compromise.
Made with the finest grades of pigment available (yes, there are differences), Gamblin Artist's Oils have luscious working properties, 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 colors within the Gamblin line.
All Gamblin Artist's Oil Paints are completely non-toxic when used as recommended. Most are made with alkali-refined linseed oil as a binder, which creates a strong, flexible paint film and yellows significantly less than cold press linseed oil, the traditional binder in 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.
Deluxe Oil Painting Set
Robert Gamblin has selected an array of 12 colors to establish a beginner's palette and placed them in a finely made pine sketch box. The set contains the following materials:
This set gives painters a thoughtfully constructed palette of luscious oil colors cradled in a primed, ready-to-use, 12" × 6½" painting panel handcrafted in North America from sustainably forested birch. Colors include Cadmium Yellow Light, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Umber, Cadmium Red Light, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, Viridian, Ivory Black, and Titanium White in 37 ml (1.25 oz) tubes.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.
Pricing Note — Items with the Blick Best Price icon () on this page are not eligible for additional discounts due to pricing restrictions set by the manufacturer.
Artists can paint solvent—free with all Gamblin Artist’s Colors by mixing them with Gamblin’s Solvent-Free Gel Medium or with moderate amounts of Gamblin Refined Linseed Oil. For cleaning your brushes consider using Gamblin’s Gamsol Solvent, the safest artist’s solvent available. Or, simply wipe away excess paint from the bristles, work in a bit of Gamblin Refined Linseed Oil, then follow with water and soap or a brush cleaner.

I now only buy Gamblin.

Comments about Gamblin Artist's Oil Colors:
I am a semi-professional artist and have been painting seriously for 30 years. I've used most brands of oil paint. I've always worried about the chemicals and my health. I have asthma. Finally, Gamblin came along and I started using their paints and products about ten yrs ago. Not only are their colors and quality exceptional, I no longer worry about my health. Research how and what they use to make their paint. Their solvent free mediums are the best and a big bonus for me is that they are made in the good old USA. I love this company.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Oil painting , landscapes and still life. Great color And consistance, smooth texture
Love the range of colors
from Warsaw, IN
Painting on canvas it is great for the first two layers, but I have to mix it on cardboard to draw outsome of the oil to get a thicker, drier application when needed. It does get heavier after two days of course.

I like the fact that the oil does not separate from the pigment. I trust the pigments from Gamblin.

The colors are bold and beautiful. The texture of the paint is very creamy and easy to apply. I've tried other brands but Gamblin is my favorite hands down

Reliable staple for professional artists.
The Gamblin Company was born in 1980 in a small garage in Portland, Oregon, where Robert Gamblin spent nine months mixing batch after batch of oil paint by hand. See what inspires Robert Gamblin and understand the integrity and dedication behind what makes some of the finest oil products around.
