Stories from real people, real artists. Read what they have to say about our fine art tools, designed by artists, for artists.
Art Student. I have been trying to find oil paints that I can be comfortable with especially at a good price. I really love the pigment in this oil paint! It's so easy to blend the colors together too. I am definitely going to keep buying all my oil paint from this brand.
The price cannot be beat on these oils. The tubes are very large and are high quality. The colors definitely mix well together to create the exact shade you want. After purchasing this set, I am definitely interested in purchasing the other two palettes by ZenART. It's clear the creators put a lot of thought and work into creating these palette sets to create paints that will work for all types of artists and paintings.
I have been meaning to get back to painting after many years. I didn't want to spend too much money since I'm super rusty. This set is perfect for someone starting out and even for more advanced artists. The quality is great and the colors are vivid.

Considering the value for money we offer for such highly pigmented non-toxic oil paint sets, including guides, tutorials and advice, you'll make a significant gift for yourself or other artists, whether beginners to advanced and professionals.
When it comes to art materials and tools, a famous saying among the artists and the art tutors is that ‘One should buy the best quality one can afford.' It's so true, especially for beginner artists, who are still building up confidence and knowledge of techniques. The best art tools will help accelerate progress and keep you motivated to paint and experiment with new techniques.
Professional-grade oil paints of Infinity series are highly pigmented, have more depth and produce a wider range of ‘clean' color-mixes, and as a result more vibrant painting. Our paints have same buttery consistency across different colors, which is also quite important, and makes the whole process of painting a breeze. You can use it wet-in-wet / alla-prima, without a fear of creating a ‘mud' on canvas. ZenART oil paints are great for impasto painting using stiff bristle brushes and/or palette knife, and retain the beautiful strokes of impasto technique. At the same time, being finely milled, they are easy to thin to the finest glazes without disintegrating and creating the unintended granulation.
Student-grade paints are usually of lower quality, less expensive and have far less pigment, and consist of pigments of lower quality, additives and fillers. This not only have different more flat consistency, but can cause ‘muddy' colors, unsatisfactory color-mixes, and overall disappointment.
We strongly believe, that especially at the beginning of your creative journey the quality of your tools and materials can play a crucial role in your progress and self-esteem. The high-quality tools and materials will become your best friends and extension of your creativity, whereas poor quality art supplies can cripple you, kill the joy of painting and even might contribute to the decision that art is not for you. Therefore, at ZenART we strive to bring the art supplies at the most affordable price, without any compromise in quality, plus equip you with the best advice and even tutorials for your progress.

Definitely NOT. ZenART oil paints are traditional linseed oil-based paints, which means they are not mixable with water or water-based mediums. You can only use artists oil mediums: solvents for thinning the oil paint at the beginning of the painting process, linseed oil (or other artist oils) for subsequent layers. There are other mediums you can use, of course, that are a mix of solvent, oil and dammar or other resins, which are also made specifically for the traditional oil paints. Our co-founder Ardak Kassenova, a professional artist herself, sparingly uses any medium, as the consistency of our oils is very buttery and especially perfect for alla-prima technique.
ZenART oil paints dry faster due to the high-quality, acid-free linseed oil binder and proprietary process used. Ultimately, it depends on many variables (Average 12 hours to 3 weeks for safe handling)
- The weather conditions. Is it damp, rainy or sunny?
- Do you paint outside, with open windows or not?
- The technique you used: Thick textured layers of paint like in impasto paintings will take the longest to dry.
- Whichever technique you are using, please bear in mind the quintessential ‘fat over lean' rule – applicable to all oil painting work, to avoid cracking or flaking, and proper drying of the layers.
- Pigments used, Burnt Umber, Raw and Burnt Sienna dry faster. The reds and whites generally dry slower. All the other pigments dry more or less at the same rate.
- Oil paint dries from oxygenation, so the more exposure to oxygen, the quicker your painting will dry.

These are so easy to use and spread. Love the fact they are friendly for the environment. Although they are limited palettes I have created unlimited shades and colors and my paintings look amazing. Some you can see in the background of my videos
Amazing conistency, great vibrant colors. I really recommend getting these quality paints, for both amateurs and pros. They mix and blend well, look great when thinned out and the best part is that, unlike most oil paints, they hardly smell! I really like that they are non-toxic.
They come in plastic tubes, which is great, because they don't break and are much more comfortable to use than metal tubes.
Also- THE TUBES ARE HUGE! 50ml!!!
Beautiful colors, great consistency and workability.

Great product and vibrant colors. I have attached mine top and my daughter's(5) bottom art work prepared using these oils. I am not a professional but it was easy to work with these even for beginners like ourselves.
This paint blended smoothly to create beautiful oil paintings.
these work great!
I was always a fanatic of the great Pablo Picasso and influenced by his works. As an artist i wanted to learn from the spanish master himself. What a better set of oils to do them with! Zen Art was my choice! It’s a great brand, The essential palette alongside others is fantastic for beginners , advanced and expert levels. it’s creamy consistency and high quality pigments made me a satisfied customer. If you can tell by the results of my photograph sample of my Picasso inspired painting the finished result looks similar his works! I’ll be a returning customer can’t wait to try watercolors!
