Join us for a fun and interesting conversation with Scott Stevenson, Sales Representative for
DANIEL SMITH Manufacturing
Have questions about Quinacridone pigments? Wonder where the color Serpentine comes from?
How does the color Moonglow gets its name or how does DANIEL SMITH test pigments for lightfastness?
What’s granulation? This is a great opportunity to ask questions in a conversational and relaxed atmosphere.
The presentation will start off with the history of DANIEL SMITH Manufacturing and the many aspects of developing DANIEL SMITH products. You will see firsthand lab paint outs, minerals used to manufacture colors in the PrimaTek line and more.
The finale...the exciting opportunity to sample a selection of our colors and put paint to paper!!!

Which black oil color should I paint with?
Black is the product of fire. Color in the absence of light. Black is also the color of mystery, mourning, and Johnny Cash.
Why use black in a painting?
Simply put, no other color quickly or effectively creates shades as black. However, the strong mixing strength and/or temperature of some blacks can be difficult to control in nuanced color-mixing. Just as we have different whites in our Artists Grade line of oil colors, we offer six different blacks, each with their own unique characteristics. The relative opacity or transparency, tinting strength, and color temperature of a black all influence how it will behave on our palettes and in our paintings.
For this run-down of our different blacks, we’re including both Van Dyke Brown and Payne’s Gray as their temperature biases factor importantly into the discussion.
