CREATE your Own Reference Book!
Developing an easy-to-use personal reference guide of your watercolours is always a good idea, and our 66 Try-It Colour Sheet is a great way to get started!

  • Cut the 66 Try-It Colour Sheet into 66 reference tabs so that each of the 66 watercolour dots are on their own rectangle.
  • Be sure to preserve the information (watercolour name, series number, sku number, and colour information) printed on the paper for each colour.
  • Using sheets of watercolour paper or pages in a Watercolour Journal, staple each reference rectangle onto a page.
    In our example, we used 8.5" x 11 sheets and punched holes so that they could be inserted into a binder later.
  • Dip your brush into water, then onto the watercolour dot on the stapled Reference rectangle.
  • Take up the pigment and paint it out on your Reference Book page.
  • Brush out the released pigment on the paper, experimenting with pigment density and transparency/granulation.
  • You can then write in notes about the colour, such as Tips and Tricks about Wet onto Wet/Dry Paper Techniques.

Create Mixing References too - combinations that you want to remember and use later.

  • Great idea, too costly though

    As the Daniel Smith paints are so dear, I think the dot cards could be a bit less, as it would then lead more people to buy the real thing. I am looking at spending over £170 on 16 tubes, So a free card would be a great idea. Steve Garside (Brixham, United Kingdom) on 22 Dec 2013

  • Excellent product but high cost! - Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolour 66 Dot Try It Card

    Great idea but as I feel its marketing maybe should be much lower cost or even free. Chris Bland (Cleckheaton, United Kingdom) on 14 May 2012

  • such a great way to try these fabulous colours - Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolour 66 Dot Try It Card

    Daniel Smith has produced some wonderful granulating colours, which are actually exciting to work with, but as they are not cheap, it is a great idea to be able to try them out with the little dots and be sure to choose the ones that best suit your work.
