If you love the magic of colour, you will enjoy painting with our DANIEL SMITH Extra Fine Watercolour Mineral Marvels Dot Card Set! These are truly special watercolour paints, they are made from minerals, some semi-precious gemstones that we source from all over the world, process into pigments, then mill into watercolour paints! Most have a property called “granulation” which adds unique and exciting texture when painting that many artists call magical. The Mineral Marvels Watercolour Dot Card Set has extra-large dots of ALL 36 DANIEL SMITH PrimaTek Watercolours which is the complete PrimaTek Collection! Just take a wet brush, touch the watercolour dot to release the beautiful colour and you are ready to paint!
Nikky says: "I have been using Daniel Smith Watercolours for years now and they are sublime! Now these beautiful, pigment rich paints - which are like no other in my opinion - are available in this super cute affordable format which suit's a Crafter's purse/wallet price more! Do NOT be fooled into thinking you're not getting much and this is a throwaway item - I have colour cards I've used for YEARS that are still going strong!
The paint is so highly pigmented you need a TINY amount and these will last you a really long time! Just use the card as a paint palette and let it dry when you finish each time - you'll be able to go back for more paint dozens and dozens of times! They are such a thrifty way to get yourself a PREMIUM brand of paint at a pocket price without having to buy lots of tubes of paint - this set gives you the opportunity to buy 36 Premium, top Artist quality paints for the price of a cheap paint set made in China! I highly recommend these for every crafter I know, and I know you will LOVE them! "
