We Carry Richeson Shiva Series Oil Colors



Originally sold as Shiva Signature Oils, Richeson Shiva Series oils, were created in the late 1920's by Ramon Shiva, an artist who wanted to make a superior brand of oil paint for himself and his friends. During the 1940's and thru the 1950s, Shiva became the leading oil paint manufacturer in the United States. In the late 60's the company was sold because of illness and the quality went down. Then in 2002, Jack Richeson acquired the old formulas that made Shiva Oil the top brand in the United States.

Shiva Oils are permanent, and will not darken, yellow, fade or crack. They are made with pure, artist grade pigments combined with the finest refined linseed oil available. The oils are processed to ensure an even distribution of pigment, resulting in a buttery, even consistency.
