Since 1976, Daniel Smith have been constantly innovating and improving the artist materials on offer by using the teams input and the continued support from the artists that use Daniel Smith products. They were amoung the first to include paints with Quinacridone - a pigment that is used to make paints with outstanding colour and weather fastness.
It began when Dan was working at a commercial printing company and learned that many artists were using commerical inks for their work. As Dan could see that there was a gap in the market for lightfast printing inks that worked well for the artists pace rather than a machines pace, he managed to find the funds to purchase a 3-roll mill and started specialising in printmaking ink made to the high quality that he wanted to achieve. As more and more artists found out about the printing ink, they spread the word the business started to grow and expand it's range of products.
The Daniel Smith art supplies range now has various types of products that are available worldwide and they are committed to creating the best materials for the artist and always keep the artist in mind.
