NEW: aqua LINOPRINT Ivory black now also available in a 1 l bottle (19735029)

The popular and often in higher quantity used linoprint colour Ivory black is now also available in a big 1 l-bottle. Please ask your retailer.

Changes in the 48-pigment-assortment (100 ml):

6 colours, 5 of which out of the white range, are omitted and replaced by a new range of exciting fluorescent pigments. The especially brilliant, under UV-light shining pigments are suited for all kinds of artists’ colour production. They are semi-transparent and – as they are fluorescent and without evaluation of lightfastness - shall not be exposed to direct sunlight.


NEW: Walnut oil, refined (50012)

Our oil binder assortment has been enlarged by a new product – the walnut oil (60 ml). This pure, light and purified oil is a binding component for own-production of non-white oil colours and for painting mediums. The oil ratio very much depends on the type and quantity of the pigment. Walnut oil is slower drying and less yellowing than linseed oil. As thinner, we recommend our turpentine substitute (50019). This oil complements ideally the other available oils like sunflower oil, safflower oil, linseed oil etc.

We are often asked how we produce our finest artists‘ colours and what is so special in our partly manufactory-like and always time-consuming production process. This is what we would like to show you in our two new clips about oil colour and pastel production.
