Lightfast 10 - November/December 2018


Dear friends of finest artists‘ colours,

We would like to make the dark autumn days and the sometimes-hectic pre-Christmas season a little more beautiful for you and delight you with creative ideas – e.g. linoprint colours for printing your own Christmas cards or new informative short clips full of specialist knowledge. And if you need a kick of inspiration, you might find it in our creative blog - this time with Alexa Dilla, who transforms flowing AERO COLOR® Professional colours into a decorative colour circle.

We wish you a creative time!

Your Lightfast Team

NEW: Videoclips full of professional knowledge

Self-printed (and self-carved) Christmas cards are always an occasion for special joy. We have put together a special painting set with the high-quality aqua linoprint colours for you which contains the most popular "Christmas colours" - you can start printing directly, so to speak. The set 82705 contains 5 tubes of 20 ml each in the colours titanium white, carmine red, chrome oxide green, silver and gold.

If you would like to see instructions on how to easily print with your own printing stamps, you will find detailed tips here:

We wish you much pleasure and wonderful results!
