Zincke was born in Dresden and died in London. He apprenticed his father and also studied painting. In 1706 he came to London to work at Charles Boit's studio, and when Boit left for France 8 years later Zincke inherited many of his fashionable clients. He went on to become the most successful enamel painter of his era.
Suffering from poor eyesight in the later 1740s, he passed on his business to James Deacon. Zincke painted using existing portraits for reference, but also painted from life. To create skin tones he used a stipple technique of tiny red dots, sometimes described as 'measles'.
