These new labels for our PrimaTek Watercolors have a large “P” in a circle replacing our usual flower design on our PrimaTek Watercolor labels, we will continue to use the flower design on all our other watercolor labels.
Based on customer feedback, this change will help you find our PrimaTek Watercolors more easily on our watercolor racks and, of course, easier to add them to your collection!
All of our DANIEL SMITH Watercolor labels are descriptive, and provide important information for you:
