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.

Many good things, some bad
By El Viejo
from Jalisco, Mx
The pigment load is excellent in these paints. When new, they are great to use and mix well. However, some of the colors deteriorate over time. In some colors the pigments separate from the oils over time. In other colors, primarily the earth pigments, the paints solidify and can't be squeezed out of the tubes. I am on a budget. Perhaps it was unwise to economize by buying 5oz tubes of these paints. Several colors became unusable before they were half used. I recommend these paints to persons who will use the paints they purchase within two years.
The best oil paint I've ever used
By Sam Artist
from Orlando FL
Amazing quality and a competitive price to boot. I've used many different oil paints and Gamblin's are consistently great. I've seen much more vibrancy in my paintings compared to other oil paints and the oil paint works wonderfully on both canvas and primed wood panels.
just what I needed
nice kit of tools for oil painting

I've only recently started trying out some Gamblin Oil paints after a representative came to my college. I love the unique colors they have, their radiant range is soo beautiful!!
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.
