Langridge Artist Colours is a company founded by artists for artists, dedicated to making the finest quality painting, decorative and gilding materials and to the sharing of technical knowledge in its applications. Through a program of continuous research, Langridge selects the highest quality raw materials from around the globe to ensure that its range of artists' pigments, oils, mediums and varnishes are respected by artists as the best in the world. Using patience and skill, the staff at Langridge blends premium oils, pigments, diluents, waxes and resins to create perfectly balanced products. To ensure quality, every operation in manufacturing is the direct responsibility of one person for each process - from selection, to refining, melting, blending, filtering, and packaging. There is no mass production. The company's working knowledge of how and why its materials are used allows it to provide products that artists use once and continue to return to for their entire painting lives.

This philosophy is quite similar to the mission statement of Golden Artist Colors, Inc. The focus of GOLDEN is to provide artists with access to Technical Support and education and to continue to improve and develop new materials for the professional artist - that it could be a resource of truly meaningful support. The new partnership with Langridge demonstrates both companies' commitment to sustainability in the art materials industry. It allows GOLDEN, with support from Langridge, the ability to provide specialized products to the artist community in areas of the world that have not been present thus far.
