Welcome to dickblick
Daniel Smith Original Oil Colors are made by hand in Seattle, Washington. Introduced in 1989, they were formulated to offer a game-changing paint with remarkable color strength, reliable lightfastness, and consistent texture from tube to tube.
Great paint begins with great raw materials, and Daniel Smith settles for nothing less. The world's finest pigments are combined with high-grade, alkali-refined linseed oil chosen for its light color, low acid value, good adhesion, and resistance to yellowing. The perfect grind is determined for each individual pigment to yield particle sizes that maximize its inherent qualities. A small proportion of additive (less than 1% by weight) is included to improve brushability, ensure consistency, modify drying time, and improve the grind.
Color strength and lightfastness are hallmarks of Daniel Smith Original Oils. Paints are tested by placing samples in a Xenon Fadeometer, which exposes paint to the equivalent of 100 years of sunlight in 10 days. Artists can rely on all but three colors to remain virtually unchanged over a century.
Choose from a palette of 90 colors, many of which are unusual and unique to Daniel Smith. The line includes historical hues, amazing earths, dazzling luminescents, and some of the brightest and boldest quinacridones ever formulated. 61 of 90 colors in the line are single pigment colors.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

Daniel Smith original oil colors
By Da filbert
from East Nassau,NY
I was introduced to this line of paint because my color mixing guide called for a specific color. After looking for the color with several brands I was familiar with,I went to google.Daniel Smith came up and I ordered it.I liked the nice buttery feel of this paint.The color was very vibrant,and it was competitively priced.I have ordered more tubes of different colors from Daniel Smith and they have all been excellent.

I love Daniel Smith oil that is mostly all I use. Their cad "hues" are better than regular cads which I found shocking and I don't have to worry about all the toxins double plus.
Really enjoy using this paint & will buy it often.

Happy So Far with Daniel Smith Original Oil Colors
from Galloway Twp., NJ
I love reading about what paints other artists use. I recently began looking for better paints that are professional grade, and considering how many colors I want to replace and how many new colors I might like to try I had to budget. Rather than buy a lot of tubes at once, I tried a few different brands in different colors. After Googling and reading many artists' articles on oil paint brands, what they use and why they use them, I found that the descriptions of why some artists use Daniel Smith colors matched what I am looking for in my paints. I bought alizarin crimson, phtalo blue (green shade), burnt umber, and ivory black. Yes, it appears I have what I was looking for and the reviews are right on target. I have used the alizarin crimson and phtalo blue so far. What I've found to like so far: beautiful, pure, strong pigments and uniform and buttery consistency. My seascape in progress has been very satisfying to paint with these colors in it. I may have found the brand to replace many of my colors and try some new ones (esp. the manganese blue!)
