Mussini Professional Resin Oils
140 years of MUSSINI®
With the historical founding product of the Schmincke company from 1881, oil painters receive a unique resin-oil colour based on recipes of old masters. These recipes are based on the rich experience of Professor Cesare Mussini, who at that time worked at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence. Countless masterpieces prove the advantages of this artists' colour: the high luminosity and the greatest possible lightfastness of the colours, the many glazing colours and the special light refraction properties of the colours resulting from the resin components make MUSSINI® a treasure among artists' paints.
A unique combination of painting oils and natural resin
Based on many decades of scientific experience, Schmincke combines a variety of painting oils such as linseed, safflower, and walnut oil with dissolved dammar natural resin. The amount of dissolved dammar resin to be added depends on the oil requirements of the respective pigment, so that each of the 108 colours has an individually balanced recipe.
