Daniel Smith watercolours in 5ml tubes

This is great news for those who want to try these great watercolours or just get some special pigments without having to invest too much money.

Here's the link to the 88 colours that are available.

Interestingly, in the UK watercolours are more often sold in 5ml tubes. According to the UK distributor, the smaller size will make DS more readily available from a greater number of stores.

Great for travel so you can top up your palette as you go sketching :-)


  1. Hi Jane, I do love your blog and thank you so much for all the colour mixing charts you have shared. They're so useful! Not sure about your comment about watercolours in the UK though - I have managed to find plenty that are in larger tubes.

    1. I've re-worded it. The push for 5ml tubes came largely from the UK. Many stores who didn't have the space for larger tubes will now stock the smaller range in 5ml tubes.
