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.

Great price and value
By Sue B.
from Gig Harbor, WA.
I'm doing lots of landscape studies lately in oil so I appreciate the great value of these paints. Also, its nice because you never know when you will produce a "keeper" and the paint quality is absolutely there.

I use lots of oil paint and therefore am very pleased when I find a bargain on the brand of paints that I like. I love Dick Blick for all my art needs . . AND I have shopped Dick Blick for many years.
Best Oil Paints!

Great colors, great quality. Only paints I use.
I get more choices of colors.
By Da filbert

I love color! Is Grumbacher using the finest pigments on the market? Probably not, but I would rather have lots of colors than just red, yellow and blue.By pricing their paint lower,I am able to buy more tubes of paint.I don't think my paintings would ever end up in a museum.I do not try to sell what I create. Will the paint fade in fifty years? I won't be around to notice or will be too old to care. Grumbacher is good paint and I like it.
