Gouache

Gouache colours are very popular with graphic designers and illustrators, who want to achieve smooth, unified surfaces of colours. Gouache colours are produced in the same way as transparent aquarelle colours and with similar additives. They are far more soluble in comparison to aquarelle colours because of used glycerine. The basic material quality is not only the opacity but also its fluidity.

Being an opaque artistic medium, gouache colours are influenced by the colour of a paper which can either shine through or contrast with gouaches. The most convenient and frequently used technique involving gouache colours is the usage of medium toned paper as a basement then we use white gouache for lights and light highlights and blue, brown and black gouaches for medium dark and other dark shades.
