Daniel Smith released this color palette as a set of 6 called "Colors of Inspiration"

We are the original seller of Daniel Smith Handpoured Half Pans for 6 years on Etsy, before anyone else.

Each pan is meticulously poured and dried. All the paints contract when they dry, some more than others. They dry out in a way that they shrink in size by half. All our pans go through an eight-stage proprietary drying process. Because of the way we dry our pans, it can give you sometimes twice as much dehydrated paint, as tube paint, ready for your palette.

Why make and sell Daniel Smith Half Pans?

Simply put, Daniel Smith has 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 handpoured 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 loves to experiment with color, as I do, to experience all the different offerings Daniel Smith has (at last count 256 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?)
