  • Thin layers will be touch-dry and ready to be painted over in 24-hours
  • Colors dry to a matte surface with a beautiful tooth and deep, soft luster
  • FastMatte colors are compatible with our painting mediums and traditional oil colors

24-Hour Dry Time

The fast-drying rate means painters can stay in the flow of their painting session longer with layering and mark-making possibilities beyond traditional oils. The consistent drying rate of FastMatte colors means painters can return to a dry surface the following day.

Matte Surface

The matte surface gives colors a deep, soft luster that speaks directly to the viewer. Never before have oil painters been able to create a consistent, matte surface with such ease. The matte surface gives dry paint layers a subtle tooth that beautifully grabs paint from the brush or knife.


FastMatte colors are compatible with Gamblin painting mediums and our traditional oil colors. For thinning FastMatte colors, we recommend a 50/50 mixture of Galkyd and Gamsol. This mixture, used in moderation, thins colors without slowing dry-times or significantly increasing gloss. Gamvar Picture Varnish may be applied to saturate colors and impart a uniform satin or gloss surface to your finished work.

The 24-hour dry time, matte surface, and compatibility make FastMatte colors ideal for underpainting.

The balanced color palette of earth, mineral, and modern pigments was chosen for its mixing capabilities in all oil painting techniques and styles.
