1980 colors are formulated with pure pigments, the finest refined linseed oil and marble dust (calcium carbonate). Affordable colors have been made with these three ingredients since oil painting began.
Gamblin 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 labeling. With 1980 colors, artists experience colors that are true, without homogenized texture or muddy color mixtures. Our approach of using both traditional raw materials and processes ensures that artists experience the luscious working properties that they expect from their oil colors.
