These pearlescent colors are handcrafted in Germany and dissolve with water and a brush, just like traditional watercolors. They are lightfast, pigment-rich and can adhere to a variety of surfaces including paper, wood, cardboard, clay and stone. They work well with brushes and dip pens; simply brush the color onto a nib to use it as calligraphy ink. In clamshell packaging.
The pearlescent colours are water-soluble artist colours of a very high quality. These colours are manufactured with carefully selected raw materials of the highest quality and a very large amount of manual work to guarantee highest quality standards.
The newly developed formulation of this paint is based on a special purified all-natural gum arabic and on modern pearlescent and iridescent pigments. The used raw materials are considered non-toxic and the formulations conform to ASTM D-4236. Because of the special manufacturing process, the colour cakes get their characteristic and individual wavy surface.
Based on their good lightfastness and high pigmentation these colours are suitable for calligraphy, painting, graphic art and many more. The new formula also allows for a very quick activation time, no waiting for the paint to dissolve.
There are no limitations imposed on your imagination and creativity. The colours can be mixed with each other as well as with other paint media. The colours adhere to various kinds of absorbent surfaces – even to wood and stone.
The iridescent colours appear nearly transparent on a light background and they shimmer magically or fairy-like depending on the point of view and incidence of light. On a dark surface they show their exceeding colorfulness. It is a real eye-catcher.
The new formulation was developed with artists and with calligraphers. During the development special attention was paid to create a quick activation time. Beside the use of brush and nip the new formulated paint is also suitable for using a glass pen. Create exclusive accents in your art with our newest generation of the FINETEC pearlescent colours.
