Reply To: Daniel Smith PrimaTeks /ground stone paints

Jennifer, there’s been a lot of conversation about air and separation in the tubes of Daniel Smith lately.  The sticks kind of by-pass those problems which might be another reason to go that route.  As far as I can tell, in the pigments where I have both tube and stick (which admittedly is only 3-4 colors), they are the same in regards to pigment load and the way they handle.  I leave them in the stick form and just run the brush over them.  You can get special containers for them, which might get spendy if you were buying all your colors that way, but for a limited number, it isn’t bad.
