Special Effect Watercolour Paint Pans – Finetec

(1 customer review)


Finetec is a line of exceptional-quality watercolours, known for their striking luminosity. The range consists of transparent and various special-effect watercolours made with ethically sourced natural mica or synthetic substrates that provide a beautiful sheen. The Fintec watercolour collection consists of a variety of Pearlescent, Iridescent, Metallic, and Flip-Flop colours, all made with premium-quality pigments for an even more intense gloss and astonishingly brilliant colours.  Because of the special manufacturing process, the colour cakes get their characteristic and individual wavy surface. The raw materials used are considered non-toxic and the formulations conform to ASTM D-4236.

Based on their good lightfastness and high pigmentation these colours are suitable for calligraphy, painting, graphic art and many more. The colours can be mixed and used with other paint media and will adhere to various kinds of absorbent surfaces – even to wood and stone.

How to get perfect results: Add a few drops of water onto the colour of your choice. Mix the water with a brush until water has a milky consistency. Apply to the surface(black surfaces show the colour’s true brilliance). You can apply the paint to a calligraphy pen by brushing a good amount of the dissolved paint onto the nib.
