Blick Oil Colors

Blick oil colors, has anyone tried them? What are they like and who makes them? The price is sure right.

Re: Blick Oil Colors

They don't have nearly as many colors as many of the other brands do. I took the plunge and ordered 6 different colors from them. I'll let you know what I think after I used them for a bit.

Re: Blick Oil Colors

Paul, that is true that they don't offer a bunch of colors selections, but I have heard their reasoning for that is that they selected what they thought were the best quality pigments such as cads, cobalts, you know the real things instead of the hues and mixed convenience colors which tend to make up a lot of those many colors that other brands make. They didn't want a bunch of cheaper pigments and multi pigment mixes made up from colors (but they do have a few) that were there in the line, in single pigment form, already. I kind of like that idea. I think you are talking about the artist quality line, they also have a student line.
