If you love the magic of color, you will love painting with our DANIEL SMITH Extra Fine Watercolor Mineral Marvels Dot Card Set!
These are truly special watercolor paints, they are made from minerals, some semi-precious gemstones, that we source from all over the world, process into pigments, then mill into watercolor paints! Most have a gorgeous property called “granulation” which adds unique and exciting texture when painting that many artists call magical.
The Mineral Marvels Watercolor Dot Card Set has extra large dots of ALL 36 DANIEL SMITH PrimaTek Watercolors (the 238 Watercolor Dot Card has 32 PrimaTeks) which is the complete PrimaTek Collection! Just take a wet brush, touch the watercolor dot to release the beautiful color and you are ready to paint!
The Mineral Marvels Dot Card Set is easy to carry and take along from the coffee shop to the mountain top and everywhere in between!
With these dots of DANIEL SMITH Watercolor you can celebrate color, decorate journals, use for lettering and stamping projects, make cards, fine art, crafting or simply enjoy color with color swatching!
TIP – for small painting project ideas, please visit our DANIELSMITH.com/Art-Projects page where you will find line art (like the violets in a flower pot above) that you can download, transfer to watercolor paper and paint using the Mineral Marvels Dots! Also on the page are instructions on how to transfer images to watercolor paper and tips on using watercolors.
Each watercolor dot is packed with pure pigment (no fillers) which means that the watercolor goes a long way and can be used for multiple small projects!
