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 both 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.

my purchase didn't arrive and I called. There had been an error in my order and I missed it while in the hospital. The wonderful woman on the phone sent it within 5 days with no extra fee and was very gracious. Good manners are always appreciated. Judy Perry

All of the earth tones I'm currently using are Gamblin. The consistency of the paint is wonderful and they are high quality. #sweepstakes

Please don't send free samples of other Gamblin products.
Gamblin products are high quality and I prefer to use them but the free samples sent with my Blick orders are a nuisance to get rid off especially varnishes and mediums. Please don't send them any more or I'll quit ordering Gamblin products from Blick.
My favorite brand!
from Houston, TX
Very rich colors in every tube! Best oils I've ever purchased!The prices can be up there depending on what series you get, but I've compared the prices to my local art stores and it's a much better deal getting my Gamblin paints/products through Blick.
Love this paint!!

I only use the Gamblin line of artist paints and mediums. They perform perfectly, don't smell bad and have a wonderful color selection. Simply great products.

I have used these professional grade oils for years and when my local source closed their doors a year ago found that Blick had the best pricing for all things Gamblin!!!
Love Gamblin Paints

Gamblin paints are smooth and buttery, love the color and great value.
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.
