Generally regarded as one of the world’s best artist quality watercolour brands, Daniel Smith has spent over 18 years developing a complete and comprehensive watercolour range.  These watercolours are ‘formulated to meet and exceed the highest industry standards for the manufacture of artist’s paints’, and every batch made is tested and analysed for its performance qualities. The range contains many traditional colours but also some unique colours made only by Daniel Smith.

The PrimaTek colours are made with genuine minerals, finely ground into pigments and mixed with gum arabic. Many are semi-precious minerals, such as amethyst, hematite and lapis lazuli and most of these colours have great granulating effects.

The Luminescent range contains four different types: Iridescent colours reflect light like a mirror while Interference colours refract and scatter the light. Duochrome paints bounce between two colours depending on the light source, and Pearlescent colours add an opalescent shine.

Available in 15 ml tubes.

DANIEL SMITH Extra Fine Watercolors made their debut in 1993. Their vision in the formulation of a new line of watercolors was twofold:
• First and foremost, to produce watercolours that were great in lightfastness and permanence.
• Second, to offer a selection of truly unique colours to artists.

Today as in 1993, the DANIEL SMITH Watercolours 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:

  • Lightfastness.
  • Colour value.
  • Tinting strength.
  • Clarity.
  • Vibrancy.
  • Undertone.
  • Particle size.
  • Density.
  • Viscosity.

    Daniel smith watercolors are one of the best watercolors. I have seen videos of people reviewing these and you still do not get brands that does the same with their watercolors as Daniel Smith does. I recommend trying these after you tried watercolors and have some sort of knowledge over them. I tried their primary colors as well as some of their Prima Tek colors. They are the most beautiful paints I have used. You also need a small amount to get far, they will keep you more than 3 years depending on how much you paint. If you ask yourself, “Why are they this expensive?” Believe me you ARE paying for quality. I bought mine in small quantities so you can build up your collection over time. I prefer using other watercolor brands in combination with their Prima Tek brands because it gives a beautiful Granulating effect for backgrounds and bigger areas.

    Daniel Smith is up there with the best of the best artist quality watercolours. The colour selection is beyond amazing and pigment sourcing/information is great. I started with importing these, but so glad Artsavingsclub also have them on offer – because my collection is expanding continuously. Moonglow is gorgeous, however do your own lightfast tests regarding the paint. Avoid Lapiz Lazuli, if you expect the same pigment load as other tubes.
    Most of my palettes consists of Daniel Smith and I cannot recommend them more. If you want to invest in watercolours, I would choose Daniel Smith first in South Africa.
