About This Product

Essential Mixing Set:

This affordable starter set of Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolor features everything you need to get started with this popular line of American-made paints. Six colors are included in mini 5 mL tubes: Hansa Yellow Light, New Gamboge, Quinacridone Rose, Pyrrol Scarlet, Phthalo Blue Green Shade, and French Ultramarine. It's a great set for mixing because it contains multiple high-chroma options for each primary color.

Also included with this set is a small (30 mL) bottle of Daniel Smith Watercolor Ground in Titanium White. Apply Watercolor Ground as a primer on wood, canvas, and other surfaces to prepare them for watercolor painting.

A plastic travel case is included, so there's a neat place to store your six Daniel Smith colors. Made in the United States.

About Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolor:

Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolor is not just the premier brand of American watercolor—it is the widest, most experimental range of watercolors in the world, with 266 colors and a never-ending flow of new ideas. Still based in Seattle after 50 years, Daniel Smith also remains at the forefront of art materials innovation. The Pacific Northwest's premier color house popularized quinacridones for artist use, created the first commercial versions of key colors on the contemporary palette, and pioneered new mineral colors by creating the pigments from scratch, literally grinding down the stones and binding them in an easy-to-use traditional watercolor.

Compared with the other brands of professional watercolor on the market, Daniel Smith stands out for its dense pigmentation, matte finish, and strongly adhesive binder. Taken together, these three qualities make Extra Fine Watercolors the unparalleled leader in sheer amount of pigment attached to the page. Even without layering, and even on wet paper, it's easy to build up a completely saturated masstone of most colors.

Each Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolor is individually rated for lightfastness, granulation, staining, and opacity. Most colors carry the highest lightfastness rating, meaning colors won't fade for hundreds of years.
