Schmincke are a Germany based manufacturer that has been creating beautiful paints across all mediums - from oil to acrylic to watercolour and gouache – since their business began in 1881. Their initial production of oil colours followed unique traditional paint making methods that had been lost for 100 years. These methods bound the paint in resin rather than the more usual linseed oil. This method continues to be used in the making of Schmincke's Mussini oil colours.
Schminke has been producing high quality artists’ colours for nearly 150 years. Their motto, Meliora Cogito, means “I strive for the best”, which is true of all their artist materials.
