While we were in Portland, Raymond and I were able to visit the Gamblin “factory” and watch the process of making paint unfold. Raymond was in pigment geek heaven I think. When I first walked in I was a bit surprised at how small the place was, considering this is where they store all the dry pigments. make all the paints, inks and mediums, and house all the stock waiting to be shipped to retailers. It was pretty cool actually. It smelled great in there, like linseed oil.
