Why make and sell Daniel Smith Half Pans?

Simply put, Daniel Smith have some of the best watercolor paints in the world, but they do not provide them in a half pan size. Additionally, extruded half pans, which is what most manufacturers make, handle differently than hand poured half pans from a tube. These paints reconstitute beautifully, and are of a wonderful consistency for travel, unlike the poured half pans with honey or sugar in them. Yuck! Talk about a sticky mess.

Consider this, it can take quite a while for you to go through a tube of paint, and while it sits on the shelf, it ages in the tube. Additionally, many of Daniel Smith's paints are quite expensive, making it hard for an artist who love to experiment with color, like I do, to experience all their different offerings Daniel Smith has (at last count 238 of them). By providing half pans, you can experiment and find your favorites. Just found out you don't like Pyrrol Red? Thank goodness you didn't buy a whole tube of it for $15. (But seriously.. Who doesn't love Pyrrol Red?)

Each pan is meticulously poured and dried. I over fill the pans so that when they dry you can have the fullest pan possible. Midway through the drying cycle they are gently pressed to release any air, and to try to give as much paint as possible. I try to only pour on demand, keeping them as fresh as possible.

All the paints contract when they dry, some more than others. Those dry out in a way that they shrink in size by half. If you are lucky enough to buy one those special babies, they go through a two stage process, where after they dry the first time, I add more paint to them and redry. Giving you sometimes twice as much dehydrated paint, ready for your palette, as there was initially wet.

One last thought, of the few places that sell Daniel Smith Watercolors in tubes, shipping and or tax, can make it cost prohibitive to order just the color you need for a project. You may also not need a whole tube of it.



(Note: If you are new to hand poured half pans, by drying the paint I am removing the water content, which means the resulting pan will look quite dehydrated and can have air gaps in the pan, this doesn't affect how much paint there is to work with when you use them, just add water and paint. I have had pans last many months with regular use depending on how much you use of them)

FAQs

The time between placing and order and the time it ships varies weekly. We list this time under each listing, in the cart, and on your invoice. Orders are filled in the order that they are received.

Because all pans are handpoured, your order will not be able to be filled immediately.

Our drying process is not as simple as pour in pan and wait. We have a lengthy multi step process and only so many pans can be filled and monitored a week, and no more. So most of the time we have a waiting list of 1 to 3 weeks BEFORE your order is filled.

This means your MUST pay attention to our processing times under each listing, to determine how long it will take to get your paints.
