Gamblin Fast Mattes

Here’s a pet portrait in Gamblin’s Fast Matte Oils… I like it! I’m finding the fast mattes are a nice transitional medium for me, as I find my way into oils. They are a little like Golden’s slow-drying acrylics in terms of how they handle… and I can see why some folks have difficulty distinguishing between oils and acrylics these days; you can get acrylics to act more like oils, and oils to act more like acrylics!

  1. Inquisitive puppy! Great personality!
    I actually held these paints in my hands a few weeks ago! I’m glad you are enjoying them. I use a walnut alkyd which dries overnight: the same idea! (Hence, the reason why I didn’t buy!) What colours did you purchase?
