Welcome to dickblick
Made in Germany, Schmincke's Norma Professional Oil Colors are environmentally friendly in both their formulation and production.
Norma's balanced selection of 84 brilliant modern and traditional colors includes 27 high-quality transparent and unique special colors. In addition to new highly lightfast Chromium Yellow colors (which achieve a high degree of coverage), special colors also include Poppy Red, Cobalt Turquoise, Agate Brown, Schweinfurt Green Hue, Neutral Black, Gold, Silver, and Bronze. All 84 shades display the maximum degree of lightfastness.
The environmentally friendly formulation of Norma Oils includes the use of many naturally renewable raw materials. Combinations of pure, high-quality plant oils produce good adhesion, optimum absorption of the pigment, and less tendency to yellow. The best of both traditional and modern pigments are used in the highest possible concentrations, guaranteeing the maximum efficiency and an extraordinary degree of luminosity and brilliance.
A patient manufacturing process that includes grinding with a traditional three-cylinder mill, followed by a three-month maturation period before packaging, guarantees the optimum development of the raw materials within the pure oil paints. All Norma colors display a balanced, creamy, buttery consistency, producing the optimum texture when mixed together. Optimization of the formulation also ensures that the drying process is shortened and is even for all colors — guaranteeing a brilliant, resistant surface.
Norma Professional Oils can be combined with Schmincke Mussini colors and other oil paints.
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.

Comments about Schmincke Norma Professional Oil Colors:
I purchased the yellow mixture of nickel and chrome antimony. The only problem I have with this brand is that the binder is not listed on the tube nor their site. I assume from the smell and drying time it's safflower oil. The color is lightfast and beautiful and should be more widely available but I would not have chosen this brand if not for the fact that it wanted to try this color mixture as I prefer linseed oil.

You don't hear much talk about the Norma line of paints. They are often overshadowed by Schmincke's premium Mussini line. However, the Norma's possess qualities that some might prefer. They are a little more opaque than the Mussinis and they don't use a solvent in the paint. Give the Normas a try. They are highly pigmented and great quality.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Norma is fantastic
These paint is very popular in germany. They are artist quality grade for low price compared to other propaints. I compare them to Rembrandt or W&N paints. They blend softly and have very rich saturation. The cadmiums and cobalts are unmatchable for the price. 8 Euro for the cads and cobalts is fantastic! The Prussian Blue is to die for. It is better than Rembrandt or old Holland Prussian blue.The Mussini line of paint is very premium and i have 30 tubes of mussini too, i cant realy see a difference. So go for it!

I goes on smooth and blends so well. the colors are solid and have umph. the choice of colors is very good. I really have not found a downside for it as a product. I love this paint
