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.
Sodalite Genuine - Sodalite Genuine, with a distinctive deep blue color, is one of the components of Lapis Lazuli and very rare. Sodalite Genuine is the finest quality and deepest blue that comes from Greenland and the flanks of Italy's Mt. Vesuvius. In watercolor, the inky color 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.
