Lightfast 30 - May / June 2021 


Dear friends of finest artists‘ colours!

Painting makes life more colourful! Do you also feel moments of happiness with the help of colour and painting, making everything a little easier? That would make us very happy and the reactions we receive from you via various channels are quite clear: Colours make life more beautiful, an important fact in this troubled time!

With this in mind, we have developed a few new super-granulating HORADAM® colours for you which you absolutely should get to know! We have also received a beautiful step-by-step tutorial from artist Elena Romanzin for a still life with MUSSINI® that we would like to share with you. Maybe you will take the time and try oil painting? Of course, you can also do this with our other oil colour series.

We wish you all the best, stay healthy and creative!

Your Lightfast team

Following the great success of the three special series HORADAM® AQUARELL "Supergranulating Colours", Schmincke has now succeeded in formulating two further special editions in which supergranulating effects can be achieved in additional colour ranges.

The new series "Tundra" and "Forest" each contain 5 colours in 15 ml tubes and complement the three previous series "Deep Sea", "Glacier" and "Galaxy" in the most beautiful way. They are all also available in special theme sets with 5 tubes à 5 ml.


CREATIVE BLOG: "My cup of Tea" Painting a still-life with MUSSINI® - finest artists´ resin-oil-colours


by Elena Romanzin

In this tutorial Elena Romanzin shows us how she painted this small still-life of some of her family keepsakes using MUSSINI® finest artists´ resin-oil-colour. The painting is called "My Cup of Tea". It is an English expression to say that something really belongs to you, because painting became her passion starting her painting studies in 1990.
