About This Product
Try all 266 colors of Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolor with this affordable set of dot cards. Five letter-sized cards are packed with colorful samples of all the primaries, all the secondaries, all the earth tones and metallics and duochromes and semi-precious stones. As a bonus, you'll also get a dot of each color of Daniel Smith's new gouache.
You'll be surprised how far these dots go (or, if you're already a dot card aficionado, you've already stopped reading and started thinking about the many little paintings you'll make with your new dot library.) Simply wet the dots to activate the paint—we like to apply a couple of drops of water and let it settle into the paint, but you can also just use a wet brush.
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.
Made in the United States.
