I found this Finetec palette on Coliro.de. It looks gorgeous. Has anyone tried it?

No, but it looks very pretty. Something to put on my Christmas list! Thanks for the heads up.

That palette is one we have sold for a few years.  You can find it here:
http://www.johnnealbooks.com/prod_detail_list/s?keyword=S768

Russet Red, Bronze Satin, Diamond Yellow, Original Bronze, Regal Bronze, Mother of Pearl Pink, Metallic Indian Red, Silver Pearl, Pure Mother of Pearl, Shining Pink,
Shining Reseda (soft green), Shining Aquamarine.

These metallic color sets are made of mica and corrosion protected metallic pigments with a Gum Arabic binder. The colors can be mixed or overpainted and are lightfast and non-toxic. Mix water into the color with a brush and use the brush to load your pen. About half of the colors in this set will look great on black paper, but do not show much on white paper.

Attached is a color chart. 

Cheers, Michael

Thank you, Micheal!

Scarlet,
Shipping to the UK for airmail is $14, surface $8.  This would cover about 1 pound weight, which would be four of these sets or one set plus a bunch of nibs and even a few holders.  Pm me with your order and I'll let you know the exact cost. 
Cheers, Michael

Yes I've tried it. It's great. I did a test of all the colours on black paper on a post in my instagram.

Thanks Micheal! That sounds very reasonable - There are a few things I want that I can't get here, so I'll write up my shopping list and get back to you.
Thanks!

I took a really deep breath after I read the post title, getting really excited about a new Finetec palette even before actually reading the post.  ;D

I have this palette and I love it. And it's really easy to use!

Schin, the color variation is even more apparent when the paint is used for lettering.

I don't think is the same palette. I bought my first Finetec last week from PIA and the product image showed the new colors, but when I purchased it, my order page showed a thumbnail of the old palette. I contacted them and they actually have both on stock! At first the attendant told me it was a mistake but he investigated further and found both palettes. ;D It's supossed to arrive monday, if you want I can upload a photo of the colors.
