Welcome to dickblick
Chroma Archival Oils is a line of professional-quality artists' oil paints that includes an assortment of Series 1 "Gold Series" colors at a student-grade price.
The Gold Series completes a mixing palette that is much more highly pigmented and satisfying for students and professors to use in the classroom. All Gold Series colors are denoted in the table below with an asterisk (*).
With a formulation of "perfected consistency" and a rich, buttery texture, Archival Oils appeal to all oil artists, from beginners to experts. When combined with Chroma Archival Odorless Mediums, they dry quickly on the painting, but remain workable on the palette.
As Archival paintings dry, cure, and become stable, their surface layers stretch to accommodate movement below, allowing artists to complete their work quickly without harming it, even when complex layering techniques are used. Age-cracking does not occur on paintings created using Archival Oils.
Use Chroma Archival Oils with Chroma Archival Odorless Mediums for a healthier and more pleasant working environment.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

Stinks but does what it's supposed to do
By Happy Painter
I was looking for a fast drying to white to use in my underpaintings so I ordered a tube of Archival Oil's Fast Drying Titanium White. I was satisfied with how quickly it dried, its ability to cover darker areas, and how well the dried paint surface accepted subsequent layers and glazes. However, I found the smell to be too strong. Even though I run an Austin Air purifier, the smell still bothered me. I had to move paintings I had used this paint on into the garage to dry because I just couldn't take the smell. It kind of smells like strong spray paint. While I liked the paint's other qualities, I was glad when I had used it all and didn't have to smell it anymore. I will not order this brand of paint again because of the smell. If strong smells don't bother you, this paint might be worth a try if you are looking for a fast drying, highly opaque white.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
