Finetec GmbH has produced high-quality Pearl Colors since 2005 -handmade in a Germany-based family business – using only the best ingredients. Finetec GmbH Pearl Colors can be dissolved with water and a brush just like watercolors and are perfectly suited for calligraphy, painting or hobby. Tip: for the perfect result we recommend putting some drops of water on the color and letting it sit for a few minutes before using it. Pearl Colors are made of Mica-Pigments and Gum Arabic, they are completely free of animal ingredients. Paint contains no filler materials which allows the pigments to shine in their full brilliance. The ingredients used for the production of these Pearl Colors are sourced from reputable German manufacturers. Mica is a product made of minerals. These pigments are known to be very light-fast and they don’t oxidize. Gum arabic is a natural product made of the hardened sap of the acacia tree.
