Quinacridones combine the power of the staining pigments with the luminosity of the transparents.
They flow beautifully for extremely smooth washes, have incredible depth of color and can be lifted easily while still wet.
Understandably, they’ve been very popular colors since their introduction. People just love them. No other colors have both the intensity and transparency of the quinacridone family. They are synthetic organic pigments, created in the world’s most advanced color laboratories. Miniscule pigment particles are exceptionally uniform in size and shape, which translates to unfailing behavior in the paint.DANIEL SMITH Extra Fine Quinacridone Watercolors - 15ml Tubes
