Hi Jane....what do you think about Daniel Smith Opera, SB turq and Prussian behind UV glass? I won’t be using them at all, but I will be using the box. UPDATED TUE 10th APRIL 2018 - Prima have given me some more information - see the comments below in RED. While there are many artists who do not have a green in their palette, I am not one of them!
