Discover our formulation of the month for March 2019.

Spirit of Spring

The cold long days of winter have left their darkness behind and a different world appears as a new dawn arrives. Cherry trees have awakened from their dormancy shaking their branches in the gentle breeze. The smell of spring is all around. A sense of lightness and joy floats in the air and eases your mind as loose clouds of delicate rosé cherry blossoms are dancing in the clear blue sky ensnared by the bright rays of the spring’s sun. As they swivel down and create an enchanting layer of soft rosé snow on the ground, you dream that this moment lasts forever.

p = total weight pigments (solid)

In the dry state: Pigment / binder ratio = (Σ Pigment) / (Total solid content (wet form) – (Σ Pigment)) 

Feasibility for on-line application

The stylings in our color inspirations are intended to demonstrate future effect color directions and possibilities. Although we have tried to make the formulations as realistic as possible, we cannot guarantee their full feasibility for on-line application. A certain degree of modification and fine tuning will probably be necessary.
