A simple cup of tea creates a relaxing moment to meditate on the day, awaken the senses and allow creativity to take hold. Daniel Smith's Tea Cup Triad is inspired by the delicate porcelain and precious floral patterns of a classic tea service. Explore the possibilities of this three-color set to create tiny rose blossoms on an ornamental cup and saucer or go big and bold to paint a lovely landscaped garden.
Sip a cup of tea with three charming colors sure to inspire. Opera Pink is brilliant and bright, perfect to paint stunning petals and rosebuds. Spring Green is the quintessential color of new growth and early spring foliage. Iridescent Gold adds a glided flourish to this color collection with its sparkle and shine. Your paintings will come alive with the cheerful tones of this whimsical watercolor palette.
Opera Pink is the brightest pink we offer. A base of stunning Quinacridone Magenta is amplified with a touch of fluorescent pigment for a watercolor that really glows. Use this pink full strength for a pop of saturated color. Mix with its trio-mates to produce natural looking tones - mixtures with Spring Green yield a slightly violet magenta while Iridescent Gold results in a shimmering coral tone.
Spring Green is vibrant and sunny, a perfect choice to pair with Opera Pink. This high-key combination gives you radiant color for fearless painting. Use Spring Green at full strength for the first blades of grass or bright new growth on trees and flowers. Simply mix with Opera Pink for a darker shade with complex undertones. Mixtures can range from medium green to warm brown.
Iridescent Gold adds just the right amount of shine to paint the golden details of your teacup study. The rim of cup and saucer are defined by a shiny gold streak that balances with the teacup’s botanical decorations. One of our most popular luminescent watercolors, Iridescent Gold is a useful addition to your palette whenever a warm sparkle is desired. At full strength this pigment is light and reflective. In mixtures and washes Iridescent Gold adds a subtle shimmer and lovely light reflecting qualities.
