Daniel Smith PrimaTek Watercolors retain many of the natural qualities of their source minerals. In artist's paint, the size of the pigment particle is very important - it determines the amount of light that is reflected and, therefore, the intensity of the paint. Standard pigments are produced in labs and adhere to a specific size. When Daniel Smith develops PrimaTek pigments, they mill the minerals to a point where the color is optimized. Pigments that are too large are gritty and, if milled too far, the color can appear dull. The resulting characteristics of these PrimaTek paints vary based on the mineral. Most have a natural luminosity and many granulate.
Azurite Genuine - Azurite Genuine is a tranquil clear blue, lightfast and semi-transparent, is beautiful for skies or distant mountains. The color was widely used through the Renaissance, then replaced by less expensive, more easily derived pigments such as Cobalt Blue and Cerulean. Daniel Smith's supply of Azurite is the brightest and purest available.
