Daniel Smith Luminescent Watercolors

Expand the possibilities of your watercolor practice with Daniel Smith Luminescent Watercolors, made by hand in Seattle, Washington. These superior-quality watercolors employ miniscule particles of titanium-coated mica to achieve their dazzling properties. Use them alone or mix them with standard watercolors for striking effects of light and color.

Daniel Smith Luminescent Watercolors are divided into three types — Iridescent/Pearlescent, Interference, and Duochrome.

Iridescent/Pearlescent colors appear almost colorless straight from the tube, but when applied over a dark ground they create a fascinating sense of depth, along with intense color and sheen.

Interference colors take on different hues depending on how the light is striking them from various points of view. For example, Interference Green looks like a shimmering, pearly green from one angle, but from another refracts a reddish hue.

Duochrome colors bounce between two distinct colors depending on the reflective light — pure visual excitement!

More highly pigmented and finely ground than any watercolor on the market, Daniel Smith Luminescent Watercolors have excellent brushing properties. All are single pigment colors with the top lightfast rating of LR I.
