Winsor & Newton have been producing fine artist Designer Gouache since the mid 1930's. Today, the Designers' Gouache range benefits from significant developments in technology and is smoother, flatter, more opaque and more brilliant than ever before.
Designers' Gouache colours are a range of opaque water colours, mainly used by designers, illustrators and commercial artists to create vibrant illustrations in solid colour.
Gouache is also widely used in fine art as an opaque water colour. Can be used thinly for a wash at the start of a painting then applied in thicker layers towards the end. Unlike transparent water colour, where you need to plan and reserve the white of the paper, gouache is more controllable and enables you to remove mistakes and re-paint.
Available in 90 individual colours.
After many years using this product the quality is still there. Smooth and beautiful to use.
Very happy with the quality of these paints and the colours are beautiful.
i bought the gold to try because i have so much fun with the silver. the silver has added sparkle to the painting, especially in dark areas. have yet to start with the gold but expecting silver. i have added the silver to washes and other colours and also in sprays on the paintings. it is very exciting working with it. so far it has been the only gouache i have ever used in my watercolour paintings.
