Gamblin Oil Colors
After years of painting, Robert Gamblin became curious about how his artist materials were actually made. He decided to experiment, and for the first year of his endeavor he created only white oil paint. Once he was satisfied with those results, he moved onto more colors. Inspired by the Old Master’s, Robert wanted to make paint that would not only produce beautiful results, but would be more stable, lightfast and non-toxic. Using machines made just for Gamblin, Robert began producing paints with high pigments loads with rich textures, and Gamblin’s reputation began to shine. As the company began to grow, Robert Gamblin was commissioned by the Smithsonian to recreate antique paints from the 17th-19th centuries, and after much development, he formulated Gamblin Conservation Colors, which are used by over 250 museums around the world to retouch old masterpieces. Gamblin continues to expand, but will always remain dedicated to oil painters. It is a company that is inspired by centuries of art, but is still progressive in charting new ground for artists.
