I'm intrigued by both colors

I'm intrigued by both colors after watching yours and others' reviews, so I picked up both tubes recently to give them a shot. I REALLY love the granulation, so I prob will stick with the original. But I love colors in general, so I'll get enjoyment from both of them.

I have Daniel Smith PB35. I

I have Daniel Smith PB35. I do not understand why, but my Cerulean Blue always dries out and crumbles into little pieces. So I have to throw it out because if I try to reclaim it with just water, it is just horrible with chunks of pigment. So now I use fresh paint and add honey. This has been working for me. The paint drys in the pans,but doesn’t crumble. I should also mention that I live in Northern California. We are basically desert country here in Summer. Hot and dry, with little humidity. Winters are cool. No snow here in the Valley.
