Question Dana Colors

Has anyone ever heard of them. They only sell big tubes. But, what about the quality? Thanks

Hi Elaine

I attend a workshop every thursday morning and that is the only paint my instructor uses. She swears by em! She is ordering me a large tube of T. White. You have to get a spackle gun to use it thats how large the tube is. You can pick one up at any hardware store. Give em a try!

Smile big tubes pro and con

Most big tubes are advertised as "student grade" which sometimes means more filler and less pigment. However, depending on what you paint and the particular line of BIG TUBES you may find it is the same stuff that they sell at the high price...its just a way of dumping there overruns without lowering the value of their alleged PROFESSIONAL GRADE colors.

You really have to test them to know.

Danacolors For Sale

I tried them but preferred my Grumbachers. Two galleried artists I know swear by Danacolors. Professional grade and large tubes ( 4 1/2fl. oz. ( 140ml). I have over three quarters of each tube left of Cad. Yellow; alizarin crimson; ultra blue; cerulean blue; thalo green; viridian green and titanium white, including another full tube of tit. white. Eight tubes altogether (Only thing missing for a limited palette is cad. red ( which someone bought prior to this.)I paid over $150.. Selling price is $70.00 and whatever shipping is( probably around $8.)
