Highest Quality Oil Paint for Pennies

Save Money by Tubing Paint

High quality oil paint does not have to be expensive.  Purchasing paint in bulk can save a bundle;  Get paint in jars and tubs and use it directly from the container or tube it yourself. 
Empty 40 mL paint tubes

I don't use it fast enough to prevent paint from drying out in a wide mouth container, so I like to order paint in large quantities and tube it into 40mL or 125mL tubes.

Bulk Professional Oil Paints

Previously I discussed the content of various brands of oil paints.  Another brand I like to paint with is RGH.  These american made paints do not use extenders and contain only pigments and alkalai refined linseed oil.  They can also be custom made with safflower or walnut oil. 

RGH sells paint in tubes, jars and cans in sizes from 37, 63, 125 and 250 mL or 1/8,1/4, 1/2 and full pints to a quart, 1/2 gallon and gallon!

See the RGH pigment identification chart here.
