In 1976, scraping enough money together to purchase on old 3-roll mill, Dan began manufacturing a specialized printmaking ink with the lightfastness and working characteristics artists desired. Over the years, as Dan’s partnership with artists grew, so grew the business. Today, Daniel Smith Artists’ Materials is a leading designer and manufacturer of beautiful Artist Quality Watercolors and Oils.
At Gamblin, our mission is to lead oil painting and printmaking into the future. To us this means crafting materials as they ought to be, not just as they have been. Our luscious colors and contemporary mediums are true to historic working properties, yet safer and more permanent.
