Why Gamblin paint?

Gamblin’s mission is to lead oil painting and printmaking into the future. Their luscious colors and contemporary mediums are true to historic working properties, yet safer and more permanent.  The Art Cart doesn’t carry “Student grade” paint.  However, we do carry 1980 which is a value paint which give the artist the experience of fine artist oils.

1980 Oil Colors

1980 Oil ColorsTrue color. Real value.

Gamblin 1980 Oil Colors are made with the same dedication and pure pigments that go into our Artist’s Oils. In addition, Gamblin uses the same process of mixing, milling, filling, and hand labeling.

In order to reduce the cost of oil colors, some manufacturers use gels and waxes to stiffen colors and replace traditional pigments with less expensive ones.

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, without homogenized texture or muddy color 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 colors.


The quality of Royal & Langnickel’s painting and palette knives is unparalleled. These high-performance knives are constructed of nickel-plated stainless steel blades, solid brass ferrules, and hardwood handles. The steel blade is tempered and ground by hand for consistent flexibility and quality.
