Gouache is similar to watercolour paint, but it is opaque rather than transparent. If you want to create areas of flat, brilliant colour for design and illustration, then gouache is the paint for you. Winsor & Newton Designers' Gouache is the leading set in the field, made with pigment and bound with gum arabic for a quick drying time. It contains none of the chalk added to lesser brands and produces flat, vibrant coverage. You can shop individual colours or try out a gouache set, such as Winsor & Newton Designers’ Gouache Introduction Set that will introduce you to the delights of this type of paint.
