Wisteria*:  DANIEL SMITH Wisteria, like the blooms of its namesake flowering vine, is a delicate, red leaning lavender. Similar in color to Ultramarine Red but with different properties, this non-granulating and non-staining color paints smoothly and lifts easily. Wonderful for painting orchids and other florals.

  • Lightfastness: II – Very Good
  • Transparency: Semi-Transparent
  • Granulation: Non-Granulating
  • Staining: 1-Non-Staining
  • Pigments: PW 6, PR 122

 

Lavender*:  DANIEL SMITH Lavender is a beautiful periwinkle blue, and quite different from our other blues. This semi-transparent lavender blue has beautiful granulation, and lifts easily. In addition to being an excellent floral color, our Lavender suggests certain shades of faded denim.

  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Semi-Transparent
  • Granulation: Granulating
  • Staining: 2-Low Staining
  • Pigments: PW 6, PV 15, PB 29

 

Rose of Ultramarine*:  This exciting blend mixes Quinacridone Rose and Ultramarine Blue. The blue settles as the rose floats, creating a vibrant, dimensional purple. For those artist artists who always mix their own purples, this unique, otherwise unattainable separation is worth exploring. Juxtapose Rose of Ultramarine with pure Phthalo Blue for fun and effect.

  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Transparent
  • Granulation: Granulating
  • Staining: 3-Medium Staining
  • Pigments: PB 29, PV 19

 

Moonglow*:  Water frees this amazing three-pigment blend to perform miracles. Watch and wait as Anthraquinoid Red floats, Ultramarine Blue settles and Viridian grays the resulting violet color. Selectively blot and lift a surface wash to expose delicate blue-greens. A description of the fascinating light and dark washes can never match a personal experience! Use Moonglow in shadows and as a silhouette pigment and enjoy its reaction to salt application in background washes. Its neutral tinting property makes it effective with almost all the DANIEL SMITH watercolors. Try introducing the Luminescent Interference pigments to areas of wet, damp or dry Moonglow. Look to Undersea Green as a companion pigment. And try a Moonglow sky and long shadows on sunset snow scenes.

  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Transparent
  • Granulation: Granulating
  • Staining: 2-Low Staining
  • Pigments: PG 18, PB 29, PR 177

 

Shadow Violet*:  A smooth gray-mauve in light washes, Shadow Violet displays a fascinating granulation when used more thickly. Deep warm violet in mass tone, it reveals a slight orange glow in thin applications. Its transparency makes it a great choice for glazing and it’s ideal, of course, for conveying the subtleties of shadows.

  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Transparent
  • Granulation: Granulating
  • Staining: 1-Non-Staining
  • Pigments: PO 73, PB 29, PG 18

 

Serpentine Genuine*:  We bring you an unusually beautiful Serpentine pigment from the land down under. This Australian green-color serpentine is of a variety called Stichtite. A soft stone used cross-culturally for carving amulets used to ward off harm, this PrimaTek has no comparison in any known paint palette. This surprising, semi-transparent paint is a wonderful green that develops granulation with specks of burnt scarlet – a great addition to your landscape and floral palette.

  • Lightfastness: I – Excellent
  • Transparency: Semi-Transparent
  • Granulation: Granulating
  • Staining: 1-Non-Staining
  • Pigment: Genuine Serpentine
