Artist Oil Colors

Artist Oil Colors

Originating from the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, over one hundred seventy artist quality oil colors are now made in New Berlin, NY. Each color is milled in small batches to provide a unique expression of each pigment used. For that reason, our paints are not homogeneous, as some colors require a very fine grind that results in a rich, smooth paint, while others are best allowed to retain more texture and provide a little more resistence and less gloss. Available in 37 or 150 ml tubes and 8 or 16oz. cans. (Larger sizes available.)
