Gamblin 1980 Oil Colour Alizarin Crimson

Gamblin 1980 Alizarin Crimson is being discontinued and replaced by Alizarin Crimson Permanent. This is because Alizarin Crimson is a very fugitive pigment and has a very low lightfastness rating. Alizarin Crimson is a cool, slightly bluish red with smoky glaze.

True color. Real value. Gamblin 1980 Oil Colors are made with the same dedication and pure pigments that go into Gamblin Artist’s Oils. In addition, they use the same process of mixing, milling, filling, and hand labeling.

In order to reduce the cost of oil colors, some manufacturers use gels and waxes to stiffen colors and replace traditional pigments with less expensive ones.

Gamblin’s approach is different. 1980 colors are formulated with pure pigments, the finest refined linseed oil and marble dust (calcium carbonate). More affordable colors have been made with these three ingredients since oil painting began.

With 1980 colors, artists experience colors that are true, without homogenized texture or muddy color mixtures. This approach of using both traditional raw materials and processes ensures that artists experience the luscious working properties that they expect from their oil colors.
