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.

Love the quinacridone red
from St Louis
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!
from Tucson, AZ
These oils are the best and keep for a long time. They never disappoint.
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.

Love Grumbacher oils and the best pricing at Dick Blick!
By Holly Holy
from Williamsport, PA
I am an oil painter and I find that Grumbacher paints hold their integrity over a long period of time. So I can feel safe buying the large tube knowing it will go the distance.
High grade paint
from Garberville, CA.
Grumbacher Pre-tested Artists Oil Colors are high grade pigments, not student grade paints, and they are cheaper than all the other top of the line oils. I buy and use student grade pigments strictly for their affordability but their poor quality is the trade-off. I know from experience that a picture painted with student grade paint does not have the ultimate richness and life of one done with the best artists colors. For some reason Grumbacher Artists Oils have the unfair reputation of being regarded as much inferior to the highest quality brands,...this is not true. What is true, is that they are quite a bit less expensive. Not as cheap as student grade paints but definitely lower in price, much lower in some cases.
Grumbacher Pre-Tested Artist's Oils have been trusted by artists for over 70 years. They come from traditional European formulas and are made by America's oldest paint manufacturer.
