Designers Gouache

Gouache paint is similar to watercolour but modified to make it an opaque painting medium (non-transparent). A binding agent, usually gum arabic, is present, just as in watercolour. Gouache differs from watercolour in that the particles are larger, the ratio of pigment to water is much higher, and an additional, inert, white pigment such as chalk is also present. This makes gouache heavier and more opaque, with greater reflective qualities. Gouache generally dries to a different value than it appears when wet (lighter tones generally dry darker, while darker tones tend to dry lighter), which can make it difficult to match colors over multiple painting sessions. Its quick coverage and total hiding power, mean that gouache lends itself to more direct painting techniques than watercolour
