FINETEC GmbH is an independant family owned business and NOT related with Reißzeugfabrik Seelig and NOT related with ALVIN CO in the USA. 
The new Finetec Pearl Color Sets offered by Alvin are NOT made by Finetec GmbH. The information by Alvin that our set M600 has been „replaced by the manufacturer with F0600“ is not correct. The F0600 is NOT manufactured by Finetec GmbH in Germany, the manufacturer of the M600 set. Alvin is NOT the distributor for Finetec GmbH in Germany.
Contrary to rumours, the Finetec Pearl Colors M600, M1200, M600S, MO600 manufactured by the Finetec GmbH and refills in round white pots are still available.


We at FINETEC produce high-quality Pearl Colors since 2005 –handmade in our Germany-based family business – using only the best ingredients. FINETEC Pearl Colors can be dissolved with water and a brush just like watercolors and are perfectly suited for calligraphy, painting or hobby. They can be dissolved with water and mixed among each other. Our products range from single color pots to color palettes with up to 12 colors.  

Our tip: for the perfect result we recommend putting some drops of water on the color and letting it sit for a few minutes before using it.

Pearl Colors are opaque colors, but we also offer Shimmer-Pearl Colors, which are difficult to see on white paper – on dark paper though they almost magically appear in the brightest colors. Shimmer-Pearl Colors are also perfect for adding amazing highlights to your paintings.

FINETEC Pearl Colors manufactured by the Finetec GmbH have a beautiful wavy surface. Due to the hand-made production no two color pots are the same. The color pots are slightly curved at the bottom which is caused by the natural drying process and can sometimes lead to a little hole appearing in the middle of the color pot after some use. This is not a defect but a natural occurence. All color pots are slightly different  – this does not affect the quality of our products.

FINETEC Pearl Colors are made entirely of Mica-Pigments and Gum Arabic, they are completely free of animal ingredients. We don’t use any filler materials like e.g. gypsum – that allows the pigments to shine in their full brilliance. The ingredients used for the production of FINETEC Pearl Colors are being purchased from reputable German manufacturers.

    • Mica is a purely natural product made of minerals. These pigments are known to be very light-fast and they don’t oxidize.
    • Gum arabic is a natural product made of the hardened sap of the acacia tree.
