Bloodstone mixes very well with each of our more than 240 watercolors and is especially wonderful with transparent RhodoniteGenuine and Quinacridone Burnt Orange.

We've done it! Safe, Vibrant Cadmium Hue Watercolours! Our new formulas provide all the density and richness of classic cadmium colours. Our hues are virtually identical in colour to their namesakes, but cleaner in mixtures and stronger in tints—you'll find a little goes a long way. Working properties—staining power, semi-transparency and excellent light fastness—are also nearly identical to those of the low-soluble cadmium colors we previously offered.

Best when mixed with a transparent pigment, this sky blue inorganic pigment is granular and medium-light in value. Highly permanent and extremely low-staining, Cerulean Blue creates exciting granulation and settling washes. A drop of Cerulean Blue into a damp wash such as Burnt Sienna creates a halo effect around the more dense Cerulean.

Forbidden by purists, Chinese White is much more than a repair patch. This semi-opaque pure white offers excellent permanency and a medium-high tinting strength. It's great for lightening other colours.Employ a brushload of Chinese White where water's edge meets snowbanks to indicate melting. For field flowers in spring meadows, a touch of Chinese White into Carbazole Violet helps create clover and other wildflowers. And, of course, you can always use it to paint details and highlights! If the paint works, use it.

Used since the early Egyptian times, Indigo has been a very important colour in fabrics as well as art materials. Natural Indigo is a deep blue colourant named anil. It is obtained from the sprigs of the indigofera plant. In the late 1600's, the major source of indigo was the French West Indies, where large crops of indigofera was grown and harvested just before the plant bloomed. Once picked, the plant was processed in vats where it was water filtered, then dried into cakes for export.

A smooth gray-mauve in light washes, 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.

Sodalite, with a distinctive deep blue colour is one of the components of Lapis Lazuli and very rare. DANIEL SMITH Sodalite is the finest quality and deepest blue that comes from Greenland and the flanks of Italy's Mt. Vesuvius. In watercolour, the inky colour of this semi precious stone granulates as it dries, layering a blue-black textural surface on a smooth blue-gray undertone. Low staining, lightfast and semi-transparent, Sodalite creates a three-dimensional quality as it dries.

This clear, dark, red-leaning orange thins into perfectly smooth washes. The colour is vivid and warm, lovely used on its own, and great in mixes. Try it with granulating greens or blues to create exquisite earth colours and shadow-grays that are both textural and warm.

Ultramarine Blue plots cooler and bluer than the more saturated French Ultramarine. Temperature aside, both blues have equal permanence, lightfastness and semi-transparency.

Semi-transparent Ultramarine Turquoise is the granular, low-staining "cousin" of Phthalo Turquoise. Use it when less stain and more granulation is desired, and consider it for an interesting, non-traditional glaze.

An artisan's favorite, this exciting medium to high staining green blends French Ultramarine with Quinacridone Gold. The inorganic, sedimentary French Ultramarine settles and granulates while the organic, transparent Quinacridone Gold floats into a golden halo.

Seldom used at full tube strength, this transparent non-staining pigment is an excellent glazing pigment and a portrait painter's essential. It's a cool blue-green useful in mixing without staining other pigment particles and for soft edges in florals. It is the secret hidden ingredient in Moonglow. Viridian can quickly modify reds, but in combination with the Quinacridones, its versatility has multiplied.

Review this item
  • these are intense , very nice to work with, the colours are

    interesting and unusual, only flaw is that you need to be ready to use them imeddatly you open them the first time as they overflow very easily and that leads to wastage which is annoying when the paints cost this much Lorna Driver (Broxbourne, United Kingdom) on 22 Jul 2016

  • Excellent first impressions - Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolours 5ml Tube Phthalo Turquoise

    My first experience of Daniel Smith watercolours and they seem to be all I'd expected. Rich strong pigment - and this is a particularly lovely colour. Deborah (Keighley, United Kingdom) on 21 Sep 2015

  • A splendid new colour - Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolours 5ml Tube Green Apatite Genuine

    I bought this as a result of a review in the Artist and Illustrator and it's certainly going to have a place in my palette for the future. I usually mix my own greens, but this granulates in such an extraordinary way that it will be really useful. The colour is rich and dark and when flooded with water things and speckles beautifully.
