Welcome to dickblick
Holbein ranks as one of the world's finest lines of professional oil colors. The formulation of each color is modified individually to compensate for the inherent differences in the working characteristics of pigments. The result is an even consistency across the entire palette of color.
Holbein maintains its quality standards by test inspection of pigment purity, color tone, applicability and adhesion, physical stability, light stability, thermo-stability, and anti-bacterial stability. Pigments are ground from three to five times as necessary to achieve a universally consistent viscosity. The manufacturing process in each of the preparation, mixing, grinding, adjustment, and filling stages is monitored by reference to optimum quality standards.
Foundation Oil Colors
These colors contain a high percentage of opaque pigment suspended in linseed oil. They provide a barrier between the painting and the primed surface. They are perfect for underpainting and texturizing the surface prior to painting.

I love Holbein Paints!
from Washington DC
Comments about Holbein Artists' Oil Colors:
Holbein makes the best quality paints in general for my money. Their greys and mars colors surpass all other brands. The colors are rich and opacity is just the level I like it to be.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very good paint at reasonable price
from Socorro, NM
Yes, and when did oil painting become such an expensive pastime?? With prices of Heavy Metal paints going through the roof, Holbein represents a way to obtain excellent quality paint without mortgaging the family farm. Good selection of colors-- some unique to the brand-- with good consistency and coverage.Expensive enough, certainly, but no need to keep under heavy lock and key.
from Cambridge, MA
The consistency of the paint and the brilliance of the colors make it a joy to work with Holbein oils. Although the Cobalt Violet in the 20 mil tube was quite expensive, it is incomparable in brilliance. More reasonable, the Isoindolinone Yellow is a great color, makes beautiful greens, and the Pyrrol Rubin (that's how they spell it) is also gorgeous, but not exactly a replacement for Alizarin Crimson. All in all, very pleased.
Excellent quality paint!
By Lorrie the Artist
from Colorado Springs, CO
Though this brand is on the expensive side, these paints are such a fabulous and consistent quality. The color stays true through the drying process and I've never had an issue with the color separating in the tube. I love the smooth buttery texture.
Good color choices
from Orlando, FL
Holbein offers a lot of pigments that are hard to find, and since they are smaller tubes than most others, it lets you sample rare pigments at a lower price, but the small tube size can also be a drawback if you work larger. They are very well made paints.
The order was complex but delivered accurately. The products were in perfect condition and the pricing was fair. I would definitely purchase again from Blick and highly recommend them.
Good paint... bad online system
By Painting Pollock
from Athens, OH
Holbein oils are a nice consistency and come in such a huge array of colors you can really stock up on colors... perhaps more variation than other brands even. I have no problems with this paint.BUT I didn't get every tube I ordered and will be inquiring about that. They left 2 tubes of Gold
