Finetec German Mica Watercolors

Hi Everyone!

I picked up some high quality mica watercolors by Finetec last week. I was amazed to learn that these cakes are hand-made in Germany! Aren't the best paints hand made? :) My color-swatches are incredible. I drooled with each wash.

I thought I'd experiment with the colors on my new leaves designs.

These paints are also going to be absolutely perfect for calligraphic writing, especially since they are light-fast.

The black is not pearlescent. It's velvet and luscious! It will be fun to explore under-washes with this color. I have a feeling it's going to be great for details also.

Here are some shots of the paints and my process. Enjoy!
