Product Questions and Answers

How long does it take to dry?

- Asked by Betty blakeman on 25-Jan-14

Oil paints take months to dry completely, and the time needed varies depending on the thickness of application. Adding mediums helps to adjust the drying time. Oil Painting Medium II slows drying while Oil Painting Medium III speeds up drying time.

- Answered by MisterArt on 27-Jan-14

How firm are these oil paints compared to the Bob Ross brand?

- Asked by Terry U on 17-Nov-13

These are similar, as they are both student grade paints.

- Answered by MisterArt on 18-Nov-13

Are these Grumbacher oil paints pretested?

- Asked by Patricia Kananen on 08-Jul-13

The Academy oils shown here are a Student grade pigment. The Pre-tested are the professional grade with richer pigment. If you type Grumbacher Pre-tested oils, you will see them.

- Answered by MisterArt on 08-Jul-13

Would this paint do well on a piece of primed hardwood?

- Asked by Terry on 24-Oct-12

The Academy Oil Colors by Grumbacher are not suggested for use on a wood surface. You can use a oil based stain, ink, or a wood marker instead.

Very smooth paint, doesn't dry up even when on the palette a few days. Of course it's covered with plastic sheet and a wet towel.

These paints are great for a beginner on a budget. They are as good as the more expensive paints. This is the brand I stick with especially when I'm practicing.
Rated by: E B. in Burke, VA
I am an amateur artist and use Grumbacher oils along with Rembrandt and Windsor Newton. In comparison, Grumbacher colors are true, the consistency is good and the price is right!
Rated by: R. B. in Florence, OR
Painting is my thing for me. No phones no job, nothing but my painting... but these paints help me loose myself in what I'm doing so that I enjoy the texture and consistancy without fighting the paints. I trust the colors and how it comes out of the tube.
Rated by: Kimberly H. in Spokane, WA
Superb rich colors! They mix well and go a long way!! I have been very pleased with these oils. The vibrance is wonderful, and you can't beat them for the price!
Rated by: Dolly R. in Fort Leavenworth, KS
Pretty good for the price...a few are a little "watery" but this doesn't affect it's mixing or "pop". Great for someone who isn't serious yet or just wants to experiment without spending a fortune.
