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.

Sleeping Beauty Turquoise - Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is a unique and vibrant blue, it comes from Sleeping Beauty Mountain in Arizona where we found a deposit that lives up to our high expectations. It is lightfast and permanent, with none of the transient color fade that plagues most turquiose. Turquoise has a unique porous nature that produces granular washes. Juicy washes flow from the brush and drybrush work has the intense texture found only in a mineral pigment.

Traditional mineral pigments have a muted feel, our unique Turquoise Genuine has a true brilliance. We use the highest grade mineral that is found closest to the earth's surface, where environmental factors have enhanced the structure to gemstone quality and deepened the tonal richness to a remarkable blue. Historic references of Turquoise date back as far as Egypt's first dynasty. Turquoise from the American Southwest has been unearthed in Aztec ruins and Persian turquoise was used as trading currency.
