How would you describe the quality of this product?
Excellent. I have tried many brands of watercolours and Daniel Smith is still my favourite.
How did this product perform compared to your expectations?
This lovely crimson washes to a pink, mixes with yellow for lovely reds and oranges, mixes with ultramarine for purples. It is made with a better light-rated pigment than Alizarin Crimson so why would anyone bother using the fugitive PR83?
How would you describe the consistency?
Creamy. Rewets well.
How did you use this color in a painting?
It is gorgeous for florals or anywhere that a cool red is required. It is such a versatile colour that it also works as the only red in a limited palette.
