Gamblin Paint Tour


In December the group was treated to a private tour of the Gamblin Oil Paint facility in southeast Portland. Our delightful and knowledgeable guide, Mary, showed us the process of making oil paint from mixing to milling to packaging to shipping services; all done on site with six employees. The hands-on system was simple, straight forward, and remarkable with color matching done by Mark’s eye — no computer needed!

Here is our group posing in front of the color samples created by this unique company, born and raised in Portland, Oregon.

And while we were in the holiday spirit, we took ourselves to lunch at Clark Lewis.
