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.

Diopside Genuine - Diopside Genuine is a rich gemstone green you'll reach for time and again. Also known as the Russian Emerald, the mineral is usually seen in fine jewelry. Exquisite in hue, Diopside Genuine brushes out evenly from deep bottle green through clear Kelly green to palest mint. The chromium rich stone from which it's ground is green with brownish inclusions. In washes hints of the brown mineral settle out, adding an earthy nuance perfect for landscape work.
