What is gouache?
Gouache is a form of watercolour .It is water based and uses the same pigments but they are bulked out with white fillers and it is more opaque than pure water colour.It produces strong , brilliant colours .
It can be bought in fat tubes in an enormous range of colours Recently a range of gouache colours has been produced in tablet form which is much easier to carry around.These are some of my gouache paints, well used as you will see because I like this medium
Gouache is often the choice of designers and illustrators, it can be used in thick layers.
I like to design my own Birthday and Christmas cards and use coloured pastel paper with gouache.The coloured paper gives a good background.
