Whether it's the rich consistency, the easy blending capacity or the sheen on a finished painting, artists love oil paints. We carry a wide range of oil paints from many of the top art supply manufacturers, from starter kits for beginners to some of the highest quality oil paints available anywhere. Make your oil paintings sing with vibrant colors and smooth finishes. In addition to oil painting supplies, be sure to review our other painting supplies, including an assortment of paint accessories.
Artists can find individual tubes or sets of traditional oil paints in a wide range of colors. Keep in mind that the paint thickness and coloring can vary significantly from manufacturer to manufacturer. Some paints can be used straight out of the tube; others may require a little medium to create a workable consistency. Consider factors like pigment load, lightfastness and the smoothness of the paint. Look for oil paint with few fillers to ensure the greatest quality and vibrancy.
Go beyond traditional oil painting with supplies that can introduce you to new methods or new oil mediums entirely. For example, we carry an assortment of oil pigment sticks, which resemble pastels or crayons in shape but oil paints in application. Consider water-miscible oil paint, which can be thinned with water instead of or in addition to traditional oil paint mediums and cleaned up with just soap and water. Look for oil painting kits designed for painting black and white photographs, too.
