Lightfast 17 - September/October 2019


Dear friends of finest artists‘ colours!

In this newsletter we would like to attract your attention to two special joint products which we have matched together with our partner companies daVinci (brushes) and Hahnemühle (paper). The practical complete packages contain high-quality materials for watercolour painting and urban sketching and are just as suitable as a gift as they are for yourself. One thing is for sure: This is where bundled artists materials in top quality made in Germany come together!

You also will be amazed by our discovery in London - handmade globes, hand-painted with watercolours. We are so enthusiastic that we would like to share this with you.

We wish you a colourful and creative autumn!

Your Lightfast Team

BLOG: Bellerby & Co Globemakers – Manufacturer of unique globes using Schmincke HORADAM® Watercolours

It's hard to believe there is such a thing: The British Bellerby & Co. Globemakers manufacture individual globes in their London factory, which are then hand-painted with watercolours, e.g. HORADAM® watercolours. We were so impressed that we would like to show you some beautiful photos of the production steps, even if this is not a classic step-by-step blog to imitate, but mainly for amazement.
