Daniel Smith 5+1 Custom Set

A Wet Paint exclusive! This brand new Daniel Smith watercolor set features four bold “Mayan”colors – so called because they recreate the durable, vibrant colors that adorned the murals and sculpture of the ancient Mayan people. The colors are smooth, non-granulating and semi-transparent. And they’re not an antique novelty; their versatility, modern mixability and exquisite hues make them colors you’ll reach for again and again. We added Iridescent Scarab Red – a complex burgundy with a delicate surface sparkle of blue-green pigment – and Duochrome Saguaro Green – which shifts between rich copper & brilliant metallic green -for their depth and lustre.
