Description

This Winsor & Newton Designers’ Gouache Primary 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&A (2)
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.

10th November 2016 Reviewed by Julia Jane Heckles These paints are a must. I use gouache paints in mixed media for new effects that have a difference all of their own. I am attracted to the vivid colours and enjoy the high opaque quality of the paints.
