Quality How would you describe the quality of this product? Excellent. I like that it is a bit more runny than other watercolors. For my application, that works in its favor Performance How did this product perform compared to your expectations? 100% on target How would you describe the consistency? Good . Use How did you use this color in a painting? Primary use is for skin tones. I am high key loose painter, so it's perfect, the best I have used for skin tones. I also mix it was Golden Fluid Acrylics Payne's Gray for a different tone. I love that it is runny enough to not "stick" on the paper if my brush is a bit dry. Other skin tones I've tried do and leave a blotch where I don't want it. Value Was this product true to its value? yes Overall Experience What was your overall experience with this product? The problem with this product, as will all DanielSmith watercolors is the over-fill. So this Experience is ALL DS Watercolors, not just this one. Open the cap and the product shoots out. Yes, because it is runnier than most what shoots out seems more wasteful. I like a very clean palette and because this paint shoots out I have to either toss it or have a semi--clean palette. I wish DS would develop a better vehicle for their watercolors. I have many which have dried out because the cap would fit back properly.
A fabulous option for a transparent warm red

Quality How would you describe the quality of this product? This tends to be a little more runny than most Daniel Smith paints. Otherwise it is very good. Performance How did this product perform compared to your expectations? I love this colour as a transparent alternative to cadmium scarlet hue. It has a wonderful warmth and depth, though it does dull a little as it dries. How would you describe the consistency? Tends to be more runny than most Daniel Smith watercolours which is a shame. Use How did you use this color in a painting? I use it as a warm red - in florals, fruit and vegetables, to make lovely oranges etc. It neutralises to a rich black with Phthalo Blue RS as well as miking a gorgeous range of browns. Very useful. Value Was this product true to its value? Yes Overall Experience What was your overall experience with this product? Overall I really like it, but would prefer it was less runny.
