Quality How would you describe the quality of this product? Excellent. Lovely granulation and a beautiful way to get luminescence into shadows. Love the way the pigments separate. Performance How did this product perform compared to your expectations? I didn't really know what to expect and was very happily surprised. How would you describe the consistency? Consistency seems very good, no problems at all. Use How did you use this color in a painting? As a shadow colour mostly. It goes well with earth greens. I use it sometimes with a neutral tint to darken it further and have also used it with ultramarine. Value Was this product true to its value? Yes Overall Experience What was your overall experience with this product? It's a real pleasure to use. I like to let colours mix on the paper rather than pre-mix, so this is a really handy addition to the palette.
Beautiful, unique shade

Quality How would you describe the quality of this product? This is a beautiful multiple pigment mixture that creates a gorgeously granulating wash, and is a colour unique to Daniel Smith. The description seemed a little "marketing fabulous" but the paint preformed true. Performance How would you describe the consistency? There was a glob of clear (gum arabic?) right at the front, but the rest has been fine so far. Use How did you use this color in a painting? Mixes beautifully with Undersea Green Overall Experience What was your overall experience with this product? I was having a bad day and bought convenience mixture paints. You don't have to have a bad day as an excuse for this colour. It might not be one of those pure colours (single pigments) for colour theory or intense mixing sessions - but much like how life is much better with dessert every now and then, this paint is just a decadent bit of fun.
