Lightfast 15 - June/July 2019


Dear friends of finest artists‘ colours!

With some research we have found out which colours or colour combinations are particularly liked by our artists and thus developed a "handy" promotion, our Artists' Favourites, small packages with two or three tubes as a gift for yourself or as a present for delighted artist friends.

Furthermore, we would like to explain to you why our colour charts usually do not only show the full tone but also one or more colour gradients. And as an inspiration, and because juicy cake is particularly tasty in summer, we show you step by step how a cake can be painted with watercolours and completely free of calories.

Sunny and inspiring greetings!

Your Lightfast Team
