Our Duochrome Emerald is the slightly reflective green of tender new shoots or buds in the Spring. Many living things have a slightly luminous quality to them that cannot quite be painted in regular watercolours. DANIEL SMITH Luminescent watercolours, unlike anything ever seen in watercolour, simulate the lustre of a bird’s feather, the iridescence a butterfly or insect, the luminous quality of flowers and leaves. They’re made from mica pigment, thin transparent particles coated with highly reflective metal oxides. Duochrome Emerald shifts between two different shades of green—a lovely emerald and a very slightly reflective green-gold. All the DANIEL SMITH Luminous watercolours mix well with other colours and lend their luminosity in proportion to the mix. Mixing our Luminous watercolours with other colours is an ideal way to use them!
