Contemporary knowledge dedicated to the making of traditional materials. Beautiful, high quality, bright paint.
Gamblin's 1980 Oil Colors are made with the same dedication and pure pigments that go into our Artist's Oils. In addition, we use the same process of mixing, milling, filling, and hand labelling.
In order to reduce the cost of oil colours, some manufacturers use gels and wax to stiffen colours and replace traditional pigments with less expensive ones. Gamblin's approach is different. 1980 colours are formulated with pure pigments, the finest refined linseed oil and marble dust (calcium carbonate). More affordable colours have been made with these three ingredients since oil painting began. With 1980 colours, artists experience colours that are true, without homogenized texture or muddy colour mixtures.
Gamblin's approach of using both traditional raw materials and processes ensures that artists experience the luscious working properties that they expect from their oil colours. The chart on the side lists the pigments used in Gamblin's 1980 colours and their relative opacity and transparency.
