Colours are mixed here on your own. It is then possible to copy a Cranach portrait with these colours. Cranach painted mainly on wood. First a primer was applied, then the drawing before the it was painted and finally varnish was applied. The materials used in the Cranach workshop are shown. Most of them can still be used today. The ingredients are presented step by step in the Farbenkueche. Some of them are surrounded by enthralling stories. In between, the painting is created layer by layer.
