Clear Mornings

Winter is coming to an end. The first rays of sunshine make their way through the clouds and gain in strength. But it is still cold! Crystals form at night, turn to dew in the morning and are gone by day. Clear, cool and crisp like a mountain lake, March introduces itself. Enjoy these bright moments. Nature's most beautiful upheaval is upon us! This formulation awakens us tenderly and whispers in our ears: "Come! Open your eyes and - see!"

Pigmentation

The PWC (Pigment Weight Concentration) in the dry film is indicated for each styling

PWC = p / (p + b)

p = total weight pigments (solid)

b = weight binder (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.
