1980 Oil Colors 150ml "True color. Real value."
1980 Oil Colors are made with the same dedication and pure pigments that go into their Artist's Oils. The same process of mixing, milling, filling, and hand labeling is used as well.
Most manufacturers use gels and waxes to stiffen colors and replace traditional pigments with less expensive ones in order to make the cost of paints cheaper.
Gamblin's approach is different. 1980 colors are formulated with pure pigments, the finest refined linseed oil and marble dust (calcium carbonate). More affordable colors have been made with these three ingredients since oil painting began.
With 1980 colors, artists experience colors that are true and won't muddy up without sacrificing quality. Gamblin's approach of using both traditional raw materials and processes ensures that artists experience similar properties that they expect from their artist oil colors.
1980 Oil Colors are available in 37ml tubes.
