The world renowned DANIEL SMITH Extra Fine Watercolours are now available in a range of 45 colours in convenient Half Pans. These pans are hand poured, a technique that is incredibly labour intensive, taking 3 to 4 pours over a period of several months of drying to produce each half pan. The result is the purest form of professional watercolour in half pans with the highest pigment loading, even consistency and superior re-wet of colours in the pan, all ensuring the perfect colour load to your brush and mixes every time. DANIEL SMITH use the same formula for both their tube and now pan colours
