There's something deeply appealing about working with pigments that come from the earth. Exclusive PrimaTek colors by Daniel Smith have fascinating histories and a richness that bring balance and beauty to your palette.
Minnesota Pipestone - Minnesota Pipestone is a color inspired from the American pipestone which is the stone that unified the American people in a time of transition. This sacred mineral was the stone of choice for the legendary Sioux peace pipes. Traveling through Pipestone County, Minnesota, one can almost hear the murmurs of the past. The warm, muted tones of the pipestone foster an introspective creative flow. Daniel Smith Original Oil Color, Minnesota Pipestone, is created from pipestone of exactly the same shade as the stone that the Plains Indians revered and reserved for the making of their pipes. Milled in small batches, it honors history and lives up to contemporary expectations. A warm, soft, earthy pink, Minnesota Pipestone is semi-opaque and granulates beautifully in washes. It is as permanent as the rock from which it is made. The combination of Daniel Smith's historic pipestone with modern synthetics is spellbinding. The technology takes your work to the limits, but the history will take you beyond them.
