These colors glow.

Nothing compares to the luminous complexity of oil paint. And among the world's many oil colors, none can measure up to the inimitable glow of Schmincke Mussini. The "world-unique" formula combines several distinctive features that can't be found in any other line of oil colors. Each color is individually formulated with dissolved damar resin in perfect balance with a blend of painting oils (walnut, linseed, and safflower) suitable to the particular pigment.

Damar resin, derived from the sap of certain trees in Southeast Asia, gives oil colors a shining, sunlit transparency, allowing you to build your painting in layers without deadening the colors, just like the Old Masters. Thanks to this special formulation, Schmincke offers an industry-leading 44 glazing colors, including iconic shades like Caesar Purple and Byzantine Blue, which simply can't be duplicated by any other brand.

We stock all 108 Mussini colors, plus gorgeous rosewood box sets and all the studio supplies you'll need. Keep scrolling and we'll show you the most important colors and accessories.
