Welcome to dickblick
Tested and approved by professionals, for professionals, Grumbacher Pre-Tested Professional Oils have been one of America's favorite oil paints since 1905. Recently reformulated, the line now includes stronger, purer cadmiums and exciting contemporary colors.
Grumbacher Pre-Tested Oils are made with the finest pure pigments milled in select alkali-refined linseed oil (with the exception of two whites described below). All 90 colors are highly pigmented, with tinting strength equal to or better than the leading professional brands. Pre-Tested Oils offer high chroma, superior tinting strength, excellent adhesion, outstanding working properties, the utmost lightfastness, and archival permanence.
All colors are available in 1.25 oz (37 ml) tubes. Select colors are also available in an economical 5 oz (150 ml) size. A free color chart is available on request.
Soft Titanium White
Soft Titanium White is a permanent soft-bodied, opaque, non-yellowing Titanium White that is ground in poppy seed and sunflower oils, rather than linseed oil. These oils do not yellow with age, as does pure linseed oil. Soft Titanium White is also recommended for fluid wet-in-wet techniques.
Grumbacher's exclusive Superba White is a smooth, buttery, heavy-bodied white ground in non-yellowing poppy seed oil. Superba is unaffected by exposure to light, freely intermixable with other colors, and offers enhanced opacity and tinting strength.
Titanium White is a permanent, heavy-bodied, versatile, opaque, pure white that is neutral in hue. It's ideal for applications where great opacity is required, and is considered the strongest tinting white.
Zinc White is a permanent, heavy-bodied, semi-opaque, cool white. It's designed especially for brilliant clear tints with all oil colors, and is excellent for glazing.

Our art class was having a discussion on what color was used in a fellow student's painting. I found that I didn't have it, but would like the color. My good friend in class needed the color to really make her painting stand out. I suggested that I could purchase the paint online and we could split the shipping costs. So, that's what we did!The order came a day early with no problems. I think I will do this again...it beats driving downtown to the art store. They probably wouldn't have had this paint anyhow. So by going directly to Dick Blick, I saved myself lots of aggravation and time! I think we will try this again! It was that easy and the shipping cost was not out of line, all things considered. Thank you!
I love grumbacher paints!
Love the quinacridone red

Grumbacher works for me!
By Jesse James
from Rio Verde, AZ
I've been using Grumbacher oil paint for years and they are the same quality they have always been. Especially love their Grumbacher Red and their Phthalo Yellow-Green. These paints are not as buttery as top brand paints, but they can be thinned.
Best paint out there!
I used Grumbacher oil paints 35 years ago. I just recently started painting again and I was so excited that they were still available.
Grumbacher is the Best!

I would not recognize a better paint if I saw it
from Sykesville, MD
I have used many of these paints and they have always been of the highest quality. I find them to be as good or better than other professional paints, and generally at a lower price. Excellent value and performance.
