Every day we assimilate millions of colour stimuli, a dream like world of colours.
You aren't even thinking about it while it happens: our eyes perceive over 205 different shades of colour. We differentiate completely between the most detailed nuances and recognise over 20 saturation and 500 brightness levels.
The nuances of our palette are from meticulous observation and being committed to the same colour house in eastern Germany. We routinely travel to meet the Schmelz Meister (colour master), and have been doing so for over twenty years. A single colour may take up to 30 days to make – delicately blending precious minerals such as silver, gold and arsenic.
