Colorfin LLC is devoted to the creation and production of innovative
materials for fine art and craft.
Colorfin was founded with the sole purpose of expanding the choice
of contemporary materials and tools available to artists.
All of Colorfin products begin life in the art studio; they are
developed in the Colorfin laboratory and then return to the studio
for extensive testing to ensure that they offer high quality and practical
materials for today’s artist. Our aim is not to replace existing
materials, but to enhance the process of making art by offering new materials
and stimulating artistic expression.
Colorfin’s brands include:
Ultra Soft Painting Pastels for Artists
Contemporary Tools for Fine Art & Craft

at the time of launch, have now become standard tools & materials
