You can apply colours in layers, allowing you to refine and define your painting as you work. Because it is water-based, you can dilute gouache with water and used it wet-on-wet in the same manner as watercolour. Conversely, the chalk content in gouache means that it won’t bloom or flow like watercolour paint. You can lighten gouache by adding white, and layer it from dark to light due to its opaque nature. Mix Hansa Yellow and Naphthol Red for brilliant orange hues, at home or in autumn landscapes. Stoneground Gouache Colours are easily mixed with one another and can be used interchangeably with Stoneground watercolour paint.
Size: Half Pan
Stoneground Paint Co. creates its handmade gouache by combining the world’s finest pigments as well as premium French chalk with a binder made from water, gum arabic, and honey.
Stoneground defines modern colours as those developed and discovered after 1704. This was when the accidental discovery of Prussian Blue occurred. The colours Stoneground classifies as such, contain organic and inorganic pigments and are typically characterized by their intense and bright appearance.
