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.
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 have used these paints for years. I was really excited to hear an interview on a pod cast call the Savvy Painter and to know the story behind the paint.
Excellent quality oil paint. Since I'm pretty much a beginner, I've been trying different brands of oil paints and so far this is my favorite brand. The consistency is creamy, smooth, and easy to work with. The colors I've tried are beautiful and vibrant.
A great deal for oil paint! And it was cheaper for me since in store oil paint is much more expensive!
WoKS for me
The Best Oil Paints to work with. #sweepstakes
from San Diego, CA
I love everything Gamblin. They are always top quality products and I love Gamblin's commitment to safety. I find Gamblins Oil paints to be superior to others, rich colors and excellent mixability. Odorless Gamsol is non-toxic and much better than harmful aromatic solvents. They have a wide range of mediums that are simple to work with. Gamblin is Made in the USA.#sweepstakes

Gamblin products are great not only that they have all the product information listed on Dick Blicks website.
Good product made in USA
from San Francisco Bay Area
I live on the west coast, so I thought I'd try Gamblin paints, made in Washington. Why pay shipping costs from paints made overseas? One of the things I like about Gamblin is their emphasis on safety. Their odorless mineral spirits, Gamsol, doesn't give me a headache like Turpenoid, for example. Since Gamblin paints are local and not as expensive as other brands, I turn to them first when stocking my palette. I have to admit though, I don't like their small screwcaps. Opening the paint and screwing the lid back on can be clumsy and awkward. But the paint quality is good.
Love Gamblin products and company philosophy

Best oil paints I've ever bought.
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.
