Welcome to the Colour Lab where we

have the largest range of pigments and

colourants (+ special effect materials) in the world! If you love colour we have a interactive style factory / shop where

you can develop your own colours for your exact needs or you can use our

Lucid Colour pigments to mix + swatch

your own unique handmade colours at

the work bench area in the Colour Lab.

We also have intermediates for paints and all the ingredients for all cosmetic

formulation and development. We can also help you colour anything from resin or eco plastics to waxes & more!



LucidColour & ColourLab was created and is still owned by Luke Janyszko.

"It all started when moving to Sydney

at 7 with my parents from Poland and Sicily, both were mechanics and they

started an engine repair shop in 'The 

Sydney'. They wanted to make me a mechanic too but I discovered all the  discarded car batteries in the yard.

Pouring out the acid and removing the lead plates from the batteries became a childhood obsession of course and turned into mixing other acids + many different metals (coins etc) together in old empty pickle jars. Coloured metal ions and complexes were discovered!

When I was 8, I turned the rarely used outback dunny into my 'Colour Lab' full of colourful liquids and crystals." 

"This went on for years and then led to making explosives from the same acid and metals as a 'free radical' teenager.

I then completed uni to work at AFP / bomb squad where many people last

expected me to be... they were right!

So I went back to making colour in New York for all the emerging artists and for many world renown artists."


"Coming home to Sydney, I continued making rare and unique pigments for all artists and every industry request. I

continue to react acid + recycled metal in this never ending 'dedication and

dangerous discovery' for new pigments

and also a commitment to all my loyal colour customers on my life's work." 

Due to the demand of manufacturing pigments and colourants for so many worldwide, I have decided to sell the

distribution rights of Lucid Colour and

Mafia Pigments so my team and I can just focus on pigment manufacturing.
