Product description

Style:Essentials Introductory Pack

DANIEL SMITH Extra Fine Watercolors - classic watercolors of unsurpassed purity and permanence. The vision in the formulation of DANIEL SMITH watercolors was twofold​; 

  • First and foremost, to produce watercolors that are the best in lightfastness and permanence.
  • Second, to offer a selection of truly unique colors.

 

DANIEL SMITH Watercolors are formulated to meet and exceed the highest industry standards​ for the manufacture of artist’s paints, and every batch made is tested and analyzed for its performance qualities.

 

DANIEL SMITH is truly the worldwide leader of watercolors for artists with 240+ beautiful colors in the 15ml watercolors,  the most of any manufacturer​. Many are traditional colors relied upon by all artists, and there are many “truly unique” colors made only by DANIEL SMITH that have become so important to watercolor artists.

 

PrimaTek Watercolors are made from minerals, often semi precious minerals, that have been ground into pigments, mixed with gum arabic (the binder) and milled into PrimaTek Watercolors​. The first was Lapis Lazuli Genuine in 1998, since then, many more have been added such as Amethyst Genuine, Piemontite Genuine and Serpentine Genuine. Most of these colors have wonderful granulating effects that some artists have called “magical”.

 

Luminescent Watercolors have special optical effects perfect for subjects that have a sparkle, sheen, or reflective glow​ like the iridescence of hummingbird feathers or the sheen of metals.

 

Cadmium Hues, DANIEL SMITH has developed safe and vibrant Cadmium Hues with the density and richness of cadmium colors without the cadmium pigment​. Virtually identical in color to their namesakes, they are cleaner in mixtures and much stronger in tints. The working properties – staining power, semi-transparency and excellent lightfastness – are nearly identical to those of the low-soluble cadmium colors DANIEL SMITH previously manufactured.

 

Some unique colors are created exclusively by DANIEL SMITH​ like Cascade Green, Green Gold and Moonglow.  DANIEL SMITH also finds unusual pigments to make colors like Mayan Red, Lunar Blue and Enviro-Friendly Red Iron Oxide to provide more choices for artists.  Other colors are from pigments DANIEL SMITH has sourced, often from very specific locations, colors like Burgundy Yellow Ochre, Monte Amiata Natural Sienna and Roasted French Ochre. 

 

DANIEL SMITH Watercolors are a favorite of artists all over the world​, from professional artists to the beginning watercolorists because of the beautiful colors, consistent performance and lasting color or lightfastness.

 

 DANIEL SMITH Watercolors are packed with high quality pigments using pure gum arabic as the binder – no fillers.​ For each color, DANIEL SMITH selects the perfect grind to yield particle sizes that maximize the qualities inherent in the pigment, balancing maximum pigment load with minimum vehicle content.

 

DANIEL SMITH offers many ways to experience their Watercolors as well as providing extra creative means for artists with their Watercolor Grounds, Masking Fluid and Walnut Ink.

  • 15ml Watercolors​, available in more than 240 colors, the most of any manufacturer.
  • 5ml Watercolors​, available in 88 of the most popular colors DANIEL SMITH makes.
  • Watercolor Sticks​, 51 popular DANIEL SMITH Watercolors shaped into stick form to draw and paint with, a new way to expressively use watercolors.
  • Watercolor Dot Cards, ​a great way to try DANIEL SMITH Watercolors without buying whole tubes of paint. These are dots of pure DANIEL SMITH Watercolors that reactivate into paint with the touch of a wet brush, allowing artists to easily and cost effectively, try many colors. Two sizes: 238 Dot Card to try nearly the entire line of DANIEL SMITH Watercolors and the 66 Dot Card to try many DANIEL SMITH Watercolors.
  • PrimaTek Watercolors, ​37 PrimaTek Watercolors, made from minerals, many semi-precious, that are ground into pigments and made into unique watercolors.
  • Luminescent Watercolors, ​48 Luminescent Watercolors with optical effects.
  • Watercolor Sets​: Essentials Set, PrimaTek Set, Alvaro Castagnet’s Master Set, Primary and Secondary Sets.
  • Watercolor Ground​, Paint watercolors on any surface when prepared with DANIEL SMITH Watercolor Ground, available in 4 colors; Titanium White, Buff Titanium, Mars Black and Transparent. Watercolor Ground can help “rescue” a watercolor painting when applied over a mistake, giving an artist a second chance with a new surface to paint on.

 

When you choose DANIEL SMITH Watercolors and other DANIEL SMITH products, you are choosing the best materials to create with.  DANIEL SMITH products are made in the USA, in Seattle, Washington for artists worldwide.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really interesting and beautiful paints
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 8, 2019
I bought the colours expecting to get paints with unique granulation patterns to make my paintings more interesting, and that's exactly what I got. The pigmentation is amazing.
One con these paints have is that the packaging is very misleading for the "hematite genuine" colour. When I bought this I was expecting to get a beautiful, deep, dark brown with gorgeous granulation. What I got was a dark black colour that does have the granulation, but not the colour I wanted. I do like the hematite paint, but it's not what I was expecting.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 24, 2020
I was initially surprised by the size of the tubes, I wasn't expecting them to be that small! However, the best things come in small packages as these are super-pigmented and super quality and the tiniest dab with water goes a very long way. The variety of colours mixable from 6 paints is stunning. No wonder Professional artists use these, and they have made an amateur very happy!

Not had a chance to use this but going by the you tube videos I feel I can't go wrong. Bought the other essentials set and housed them both in a Schminke metal tin - they fit like a glove.
