Since Robert Gamblin founded Gamblin Artists' Colors, the company has handcrafted luscious oil colors and contemporary mediums true to the working properties of traditional materials. Gamblin believes every painting deserves to stand the test of time and are proud to provide artists with safer, more permanent oil painting materials.
Gamblin's ongoing commitment to painters and safe studio practices has made them a leader in the art industry. In collaboration with the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., they developed Gamvar, a revolutionary varnish that remains crystal-clear, and can be easily and safely removed at any time. Gamblin was also the first to develop Flake White Replacement, a color true to the properties of traditional Flake White — yet completely lead-free. Most recently, Gamblin introduced Neo-Megilp, a modern version of a medium that was once the Old Masters' best kept secret.
