A non-toxic, re-soluble, quick-drying, water-based colour of excellent opacity with a consistent, velvety finish that can be applied to create opaque fields of colour or used to create delicate washes like watercolours.
Art Spectrum® Gouache is light-fast with an extremely high level of pigment loading providing excellent covering power and clean mixing abilities. All our colours are made in accordance with the classical tradition. To begin with, this means that we use the best available pigments and binders. Each colour is individually formulated in order to produce a paint that takes advantage of the unique qualities of each individual pigment. Each colour is then carefully triple-milled to maximise the pigments brilliance. Concentrated pigment colour ensures a little goes a long way.
Art Spectrum Gouache can be used in a variety of ways. Dilute with water for watercolour-like effects, use for precise and detailed line work, or use in combination with watercolours, soft pastels, pigmented inks and various types of dry media.
Art Spectrum gouache is extremely economical to use – small amounts cover large areas. Dried paint on the palette is re-wettable, minimising wastage.
