Wink Oil Paint in a Caulking tube... different, huh?

I have not yet tried these...but in my looking and asking to find good paint in larger volume without having to take a second mortgage out on the house...I received the following site-


this recommendation came from an individual within a professional plein air group I participate with...

the paint comes in caulk tubes to be used with a regular caulking gun. Sounds novel enough if anything else to at least try.

anyone familiar with it?

L. & L., I have used Classic Artist Oils for a long time. Formerly known as Danacolors. They stay fresh and last forever!! The tubes do not crack like WN. The pigment is marvelous. Both Sovek and Auster recommend them for their workshops.

I don't use them in the caulking gun size, just the large tubes. Have to place a new order soon. They may be selling them in cans now, instead of tubes in the 120ml size.

Anyway, they are wonderful!

..........i've got

......some good printmaking inks in caulking tube form. GRAPHIC CHEMICAL i believe...my drypoint ink.

....i don't know why i ever bought inks in tins where you must always cover every square milimeter with the supplied and ever ripping wax paper.
