About Us

Raphael Oil Colors developed our famous painting palettes with two intentions: first, to provide quality professional oil paint and second, to make these palettes affordable to professional painters.

Raphael Oil Colors

Our Zorn Palette is an tremendous learning tool for the painters new to oil medium and those who are seasoned and skillful colorists. It’s minimalist approach limits the choices to only four pigments: Cadmium Red Light, Yellow Ochre, Titanium White and Ivory Black.  It is an adventure to explore endless possibilities and to get surprising effects in value range, intensity and temperature.

The Primary Palette is another learning tool of five pigments: Cadmium Yellow Medium, Cadmium Red Light, Ultramarine Blue, Titanium White and Ivory Black. It is high intensity palette  that opens much wider scope of secondary colors.

Our Split-Primary Palette of eight 200 ml tubes is very versatile palette. It brings each primary color in cold and warm alternative. It is a gateway to incredible range of secondary and tertiary hues, tints and shades. You will never buy any secondary or tertiary pigment in oil again since you can develope them on your palette directly.

Our Expanded Palette was built on our Split-Primary Palette with addition of convenience colors: Yellow Ochre, Viridian, Raw Umber and Burnt Siena. This twelve tubes set is aimed to the most discriminating colorist who prefer coloristic range combined with some obvious time saving shortcuts from underpainting to the top layers of the painting.

Buying oil paint in sets reduces the cost and extends your brush milage. You can paint like a milliner on the budget. All Raphael tubes are 200 ml.!

Our goal is to provide both a superior customer experience and tremendous value for our customers.
