Description

This Winsor & Newton Designers’ Gouache Introduction Set features one of this outstanding company’s trophy products.

  • Gouache is water colour’s opaque cousin, bringing flat, brilliant colours most often used in design and illustration.
  • Winsor & Newton has made Designers’ Gouache since 1935 but has continued to update and improve it, ensuring it is as smooth in the application and bold in the finish as possible.
  • Made up with pigment, both single and mixed, bound with gum arabic for quick drying, it contains none of the chalk added to lesser brands, giving it great covering power and a matt finish when dry.
  • The range has a balance of colours that have been formulated for maximum brightness without the need for permanence, and of more lightfast colours for fine-art use.

Q What type of paper should I use to paint with gouache?
A

Gouache works in a very similar way to watercolour, so for best results you should use a paper suitable for use with watercolour. To see our range of watercolour paper, click here.

Q What brush should I use to paint with gouache?
A

Much like watercolour, you will need a soft and absorbent brush to paint gouache. Sable brushes are traditionally used for this, however some find that the “spring” of a soft synthetic brush lends itself to the graphic nature of painting with gouache.

18th March 2016 Reviewed by Amelia Turner Very nicely packaged with a very large amount of professional paint for the price. Consistency is even and rewets well and dries very close if not exact to the original late own colour. A little paint will go an extremely long way here as the pigment is so strong, obviously if watered down a more watercolour effect can be achieved, doesn't dry chalky at all very happy with my purchase and I can't wait to add to my collection further as this is a brilliant started kit with a good selection or mixable primaries that provide non muddy colour mixes.highly recommend to any begginer all the colours you could possibly need.

7th April 2015 Reviewed by Rona Rimes I use watercolours and love the transparency and light quality of the paints. However, I am developing my style and find I crave stronger more dramatic paintings. Gouache complements the more delicate shades but I am having fun using it for bolder poster type work. It has also been recommended for portrait painting which I haven't tested out yet.
I love the colour quality in this range.
