Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is a beautiful gemstone for jewelry with the rich blue of desert skies, and we use it to make one of our DANIEL SMITH PrimaTek Watercolors! This particular variety of turquoise comes from Arizona’s Sleeping Beauty Mines and is a gorgeous blue.
I was fortunate to be given some of these stones and I made a necklace out of them that I wear often! Our DANIEL SMITH Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Genuine Watercolor, made from these stones, is a stunning blue watercolor, with wonderful granulation.
In this video, you can see my necklace made of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise stones, so that you can see the mineral we make our watercolor from, as well as me painting out our Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Genuine Watercolor. While computer monitors are challenging to show color accurately, you do get a sense of the lush color and granulation from the watercolor paint.
We hope you enjoyed watching our video, please feel free to share it!
