Stoneground Paint Co. creates their 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. Colours are easily mixed with one another and can be used interchangeably with Stoneground watercolour paint.
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. Also, they are typically characterized by their intense and bright appearance.
