Paint as Good as You can Imagine. Daniel Smith Ultimate Acrylics are made with the same professional pigment load, innovative colors, lightfastness standards and permanence as our oils and watercolors.
- Titanium White - The standard white in most artists' palettes. Made with titanium dioxide, a metallic pigment, it is more opaque than Zinc White. It's a great mixer that maintains its integrity over time.
- Hansa Yellow Medium - A brilliant primary yellow. It's a modern synthetic organic color, which means it was created in a laboratory. Lightfast and strong (a tiny bit will tint a lot of white), it is fairly transparent.
- Permanent Red - Another modern pigment. It offers a bright, warm "true red" color that produces clean mixtures. It tints strongly and makes a beautiful coral pink when mixed with white.
- Quinacridone Magenta - Part of a remarkable family of colors. The Quinacridones are modern synthetic organic pigments that are surprisingly transparent and great for mixing and glazing.
- Phthalo Blue (GS) - A synthetic organic color, has become a standard in the decades since it was introduced. A primary blue, it is incredibly strong and intense, wonderful for glazing.
Phthalo Green (BS) - A distinctive color that glazes and mixes well. It is a cool, emerald green, so strongly pigmented that it appears almost black when squeezed from the tube.
Yellow Ochre - An inorganic pigment colored by iron oxides, was used by the cavemen. It is a rich, earthy golden yellow. Like all earth colors, it is lightfast and opaque, but not particularly strong.
- Mars Black - A rich opaque black made with iron pigment. It makes clean tints without causing colors to take on either a warm or a cool cast.
