As we are fast approaching World Watercolour Month we thought it would be a great idea to share some new products that will enhance your creative practice and elevate your designs.
In this article we will highlight the Finetec watercolour collection and what the collections can be used for in your work. We have detailed each palette in each set, consisting of Flip Flop, Rainbow, Classic, Cool, Pixie Dust, Warm, Antique Tones, High Chroma, Neons, High Sparkle and Metals collections.
The FINETEC watercolour collection consists of a variety of pearlescent, iridescent and Flip-Flop colours, all made with ethically sourced natural mica or synthetic substrates that provide a beautiful sheen.
The intense and shimmering effects of these watercolours are loved by beginners, artists and creative professionals all over the world. FINETEC watercolours are ideal for calligraphy, hand lettering and adding special effects to any watercolour painting.
The colours in all of these sets are highly pigmented, which means that you can achieve vibrant and intense hues with just a few brushstrokes. The sets include a variety of hues, from deep blues and purples to bright pinks and oranges, so you will have plenty of options for creating different moods and effects depending on what set you choose.
In addition to their visual appeal, these watercolours are also of high quality. They are made with high-quality pigments and are lightfast, meaning that they will not fade over time. They are also easy to work with, flowing smoothly on the paper and blending easily to create soft, subtle washes or bold, dramatic strokes.
Their unique effects, excellent pigmentation, and eco-friendly formulation make them an excellent addition to any artist's toolkit.
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced artist, these watercolours are sure to add a touch of magic to your paintings.
Illustrations: You can create stunning illustrations with a touch of shimmer and iridescence using the pearlescent colours. They work well for adding highlights, accents, or special effects to your artwork.
Painting: The watercolours can be used with traditional painting techniques. You can create vibrant and luminous landscapes, still life setups, or use the Metallic watercolours for jewellery details on portraits. The transparent and iridescent tones of the Pixie Dust collection are great for capturing those iridescent qualities of insects, especially beetles, butterflies and tropical bird feathers. Experimenting with the pearlescent and iridescent qualities and creating unique effects can really make particular areas of your painting stand out.
Hand Lettering and Calligraphy: If you enjoy lettering or calligraphy, the pearlescent and metallic watercolours can be used to add a shimmering finish to your letterforms. They can create beautiful and eye-catching designs, especially when used on dark or coloured paper or over Inktense watercolours (which dry waterproof).
Card Making and Crafts: The pearlescent watercolours are perfect for creating handmade cards, invitations, and other craft projects. They can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your creations, making them stand out.
Mixed Media Art: These watercolours can be combined with other art mediums such as acrylics, coloured pencils, markers, or ink to create mixed media artwork. The pearlescent effects can add depth and interest to your mixed media pieces.
Scrapbooking: If you're into scrapbooking, the pearlescent watercolours can be used to add a shimmering touch to your pages. They work well for highlighting specific elements, creating backgrounds, or adding details to your scrapbook layouts.
