Lightfast 25 - September/October 2020


Dear friends of finest artists‘ colours!

A colourful autumn sends its harbingers and hopefully offers you enough time for creativity! In this newsletter we would like to introduce you to some new, limited Norma® Professional colours with an extraordinary metallic shimmer. We have also created a new column, the "Interview with an artist", where we introduce you to interesting artists who maybe inspire you and from whom you might want to learn - all links to paintings and courses included. Finally, we have prepared a step-by-step tutorial on watercolour flowers by the Singapore artist Esther Peck.

We hope you will enjoy this newsletter. Stay creative and healthy!

NEW: Six Norma® Professional Metallic colours in limited special edition


With the six new, limited metallic special colours of Norma® Professional, Schmincke offers brilliant prospects in oil painting. All highly opaque colours are specially formulated from a silvery base tone and special, coloured glaze pigments, which in this combination allow richly shimmering, opaque surfaces. The special edition includes the colours purple metallic (11930), steel blue metallic (11940), polar blue metallic (11945), emerald green metallic (11950), gold green metallic (11950) and steel grey metallic (11970). All colours are available individually in 35 ml tubes in attractive sales packaging with the respective colour stripe in artists’ materials shops. Tip: Glazing colours are particularly suitable for further mixing while retaining the shimmering appearance.
