These oil colors offer artists true color for a real value and are intended for painters who are increasing their knowledge of techniques, or experimenting with new ideas. They are made from approximately half the colored pigments of artist grade oil colors and include added extenders that have good film forming properties. Each extender is paired with the pigment so that opaque colors remain reasonably opaque and transparent colors are not clouded. The 1980 Oil Colors can be used together on the same palette as Gamblin Artist’s Oils.
Pure pigments and the finest refined linseed oil are used to make Gamblin Artist's colors. Because no adulterants are used, each color retains the unique characteristics of the pigments, including tinting strength, undertone and texture. By using Artist's oil colors painters can take advantage of the tinctorial and textural differences found in the subtle (and not so subtle) nuance's of each pigment. They are made with either mineral-based pigments (inorganic colors) or with modern organic pigments. Mineral-based pigments produce the 19th century colors of the Impressionists. Modern organic pigments produce 20th century colors best for high key painting and bright tinting. Every color is absolutely permanent and exact-each color is based on a specific, pure pigment with nothing extraneous added.
Formulated to give oil painters a fast-drying oil color with excellent working properties and permanence. They dry to a matte surface within 18 to 24 hours. The strong pigmentation and balanced color palette allow for great color mixing potential in a variety of oil painting techniques and styles. When used for underpainting, the matte surface promotes maximum adhesion to subsequent layers, ensuring the permanence of the painting structure. They are compatible with traditional artist-grade oil colors and mediums.

Williamsburg presents a series of whites and transparent colors milled in safflower oil. These colors will retain their brilliance and clarity for a much longer period of time than their linseed oil versions. Colors ground in safflower oil will take longer to dry and produce weaker films and therefore, are not recommended for underpainting or foundation layers of a painting.
