Gamblin Conservation Colors are stable, reversible and suitable for use with a wide array of painting styles and techniques. Their innovative low molecular weight resin binder also makes Gamblin Conservation Colors safer to use in the studio, due to their low solvent requirements.Conservation colors are made from an aldehyde resin, a low molecular weight resin binder that has better optical properties and better handling properties than paints based on polymeric resin. Aldehyde resins are a more appropriate binder than some other low molecular weight resins because they are slightly polar and wet pigments more easily. Accelerated age testing was done at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. on the raw materials and the finished paints. Once the binder was accepted, the team agreed that the new paints should be fairly lean and slightly matte. Viscosity and sheen could be easily altered by adding binder.
