Welcome to dickblick
Lightweight, non-greasy silicone-based cream easily rubs into the skin to form an invisible barrier that protects hands from artists' materials. Messy digits clean easily with soap and water and irritating substances won't penetrate the skin.
Pleasantly scented, it contains an emulsion of waxes, glycerin, and natural oil, which also condition the skin.

I hate gloves!
from San Antonio Texas
I am a messy painter but hate wearing gloves ; this is the perfect solution! Paint can get all over my hands and just washes off! Love it!
Makes clean up oil paint on your hands very easy
from San Jose, CA
This is a very useful product to keep paint off your skin. I haven't outgrown getting my fingers in my paint so gloves never suit me very well. It goes on smoothly and you don't notice it on your hands while you're working. I used to buy barrier cream at the paint store but it seems house-painters are using gloves now so barrier cream has become more of an art product and more expensive. This is a good product though and a little of it goes a long way.
Protects and is kind to skin
from Cape Cod, Massachusetts
I do oil painting and encaustic painting and I use Artguard for both. I find that it protects my hands in that when I am done and wash up, all the color that has gotten on me washes off much more easily. If I had an open wound, I would use gloves for that, but most of the time Artguard is all I need. Once you rub it in, in just a minute or so it seems to disappear, so it's not greasy while you work. But it does the job and makes your hands feel soft and well conditioned ... which is a bonus.
New trial for me
from Beavercreek, OH
I learned about this product from a renowned artist who mentioned it at a demo he was giving to our art Assoc recently. So, I ordered it & have tried it, & it certainly did help to keep my hands much cleaner & safer from the oil paint I use in my art work. Where have I been that I was not aware of this wonderful product? And, it does not take a lot, nor can you feel it on your hands. Great product for oil painters.

A little goes a long way
from Ft. Worth, TX
This works really good. I was spotless after my art class while others were paint stained! I wiped some on my towel and helped to clean that up as well.

This works better then anything I have tried. I don't use much that is really caustic, but it sure makes cleaning my hands easier. I only wear gloves when absolutely needed. This doesn't leave any residue on your work.
unique and easy to use
from new york NY
Really keeps the oil paint from seeping into your hands. A bit opaque about how much it protects your health but it gives you an easy clean up and certainly slows ones intake of chemicals

Stops paint adhering to skin. All paint washes straight off with soap and water, inclduing phthalos and cadmiums in oils, and acrylic paints. Doesn't feel as though you have anything on your hands once it's applied - I can't stand normal barrier creams or hand creams because they feel slimy or sticky.
I am a messy oil painter and usually end up with paint all over my hands and arms. This barrier cream is extremely effective at preventing paint adhesion to skin.You only need a little, it goes on easily, your hands feel normal (speaking as someone who can't stand to use hand moisturisers), and paint smears including cadmiums, cobalts and lead wash off very easily with any soap or detergent.
