Welcome to dickblick
Schmincke has been producing artists' colors since 1881. Mussini resin-oil colors are truly the pinnacle of their paint making experience. Mussini offers brilliance and purity with the highest lightfastness.
Schmincke oils are stored for three months before the tubes are filled. This allows each pigment's oil absorption rate (the amount of oil needed to bind the pigment) to be optimized. Varying amounts of damar resin are then added to ensure that all colors dry at the same time. This guarantees tension-free and durable color layers.
Mussini offers an Old Masters palette that dates back over 100 years: an extensive range of transparent and semi-transparent glaze pigments. Schmincke Mussini Oil Colors are available in 1.2 oz (35 ml) tubes.
Wood Box Set
This handsome set contains 8, 15 ml Mussini Oils in a beautifully crafted wood storage box. The colors include Zinc White, Lemon Yellow, Vermillion Red Tone, Translucent Magenta, Translucent Cyan, Ultramarine Blue Light, Helio Green Deep, and Attish Light Ochre.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

I've used the Mussini oils for 20 years and they are quality oils

Love this paint
from Seattle, WA
I've tried numerous paints and while there are some good and some bad most fall in that nebulous middle-ground of "pretty good." Imagine then my pleasant surprise at seeing how fabulous Schmincke was in every category. The pigments were vibrant, alive, and really insisted on themselves. I could not resist using them. They came out of the tube smooth and lustrous and when I mixed them it was like learning about the color wheel for the first time all over again. While a tiny bit pricey, the cost is well worth it. I found myself just idly doing color charts I enjoy these paints so much. They take to your painting surface eagerly and I had no trouble using them at all.P.S. Atrament Black is one of my favorite colors ever.

Love these paints, but the caps always break!
Beautifully transparent colors
from Beaufort, SC
I use these paints mostly for indirect painting. They are perfect because I don't have to guess if they will be transparent enough for glazing, which adds depth & rich color. I think these are excellent paints for the cost.
Missoni Oil Colors
from Gallup, NM
It's translucency went beyond my expectations. Smooth mix with other colors on my palette. Hmmm... willing to create a new color palette with these oils.

Mussini oil paint issue
from Penn Yan, NY
I have bought many Mussini oil paints, because I love the glow, spreadability and pigment purity of these oils. However, this last tube, Madder Root Hue (Tone) is unusable…it just won't dry. I usually do color charts of new paints, on gessoed 300lb watercolor paper, and this paint is the only one that is still tacky after three weeks. This is not a paint I can use, even though the color is absolutely beautiful.Dick Blick did replace the first tube, but the second tube is behaving the same way. The very nice people at Schmincke did their own testing on the batch of paint that my first tube came from, and could not duplicate the problem.Note the fingerprint smear in the second swatch on the top row. The paint does dry in a normal time when mixed with titanium white.I must note that this is the ONLY tube of Mussini paint that I have ever had a problem with, and am pleased with the customer service of both Dick Blick and Schmincke.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
