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.

My little artist loves them
By Artist's Mom
from Ankeny, IA
Comments about Holbein Artists' Oil Colors:
My 11 year old daughter takes weekly private lessons from professional artist. First year she did water colors and last year she did mostly oils. I have bought almost 100 different colors for her in the last 6 months of Holbein brand. I think the price is very reasonable for the quality and variety of options. My daughter brings home beautiful paintings. I picked them mostly because they are Japanese made.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Paintt has a heavy pigment load and good consistency
from Bald Head Island,NC
Will always buy certain colors in this brand and love that they offer smaller"half" tubes. Small ones are great for trying a new color or for a color you seldom need.
Very nice convenience colors and lead white
Holbein offers a very nice range of convenience colors not found in other companies. Very impressive unique muted colors selection. On the buttery side. Lead white really easy to work with.
Have have few brands of Lead White. Holbein's is definitely the less stringy in its category. Useful under certain circumstances.
Best Raw Umber EVER!
By Lorenzo D'Mooze
from Santa Fe-Los Alamos
I'm very fussy. I first used Holbein Raw Umber 30+ years ago and have stayed with it. I love that it is a almost greenish/neutral dark brown, perfect for mixing darks and rocks. I bought several tubes. Recently I discovered that my Raw Umber tubes had been all used. Well, based on color charts I purchased "another" Raw Umber- from a different, very good, manufacturer. When I got home I tested this "other" Raw Umber and found it had a definite red-leaning. I bought another different, excellent manufacturers' Raw Umber. It too was red-leaning. You can't make a warm leaning pigment be cool leaning. Holbein is the only manufacturer that I could find that had a cool Raw Umber. Holbein's Raw Umber is absolutely the best.
I hava bought Holbein's paint before.
from Grand Junction, CO
These particular Holbein colors, rose grey and yellow grey are so pleasing and gets you to the value and color you need quickly in a particular situation.
Reliable and Workable
I have used Holbein's oil paints for years and have come to rely on them for honest colors, good consistency and excellent value. Though I occasionally go up or down on the scale of paints, Holbein's is my mainstay.

90% of my oil paint is Holbein.
By Linda S
from Sedona, AZ
Holbein oils have a high saturation of pigment and perfect viscosity. Holbein produces a broad selection of colors, including excellent transparent pigments for glazing. These paints are the mainstay of my oil painting supplies.
