Handmade in Germany by Finetec GmbH
Finetec GmbH in Germany produces high quality Pearlcolors since 2005. Pearlcolors can be dissolved with water and applied with a brush. They are perfect for creating special effects and highlights, they are also ideally suited for calligraphy.
Shimmer-Pearlcolors are difficult to see on white paper – but on dark paper they almost magically appear in the brightest colors. Shimmer-Pearlcolors are also perfect for adding amazing highlights to your paintings.
Our tip: for the perfect color result we recommend putting a few drops of water on the color pan and letting it sit for a few minutes before using the color. The Pearlcolor "Stardust" requires a bit more water to resolve properly.
Pearl Colors are opaque colors, but we also offer Shimmer-Pearl Colors, which are difficult to see on white paper – on dark paper though they almost magically appear in the brightest colors. Shimmer-Pearl Colors are also perfect for adding amazing highlights to your paintings.
Only original FINETEC Pearl Colors have the beautiful wavy surface. Due to the hand-made production no two color pots are the same. The color pots are slightly curved at the bottom which is caused by the natural drying process and can sometimes lead to a little hole appearing in the middle of the color pot after some use. This is not a defect but a natural occurence. All color pots are slightly different – this does not affect the quality of our products.
FINETEC Pearl Colors are made entirely of Mica-Pigments and Gum Arabic, they are completely free of animal ingredients. We don’t use any filler materials like e.g. gypsum – that allows the pigments to shine in their full brilliance. The ingredients used for the production of FINETEC Pearl Colors are being purchased from reputable German manufacturers.
