Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolor Sticks offer the same superior intensity as the Daniel Smith line of Extra Fine Watercolor paints with the convenience and portability of half pans. Each stick is packed with pure pigment and produces vibrant strong color when wet or use them dry to build texture. They’re highly reactive with water and release rich creamy colors. Rich in texture this highly saturated purple will granulate to reveal shades of plum and ultramarine. From the deepest purple this semi-transparent and low-staining pigment continues to deliver as it is applied in ever more delicate washes to the palest lavender.
