Stoneground Paint Co. Gouache

Stoneground gouache is a water-based paint that dries to an opaque, matte finish. These gouache paints are easily mixed with one another and can also be used together with Stoneground watercolour paint. This deep, moody blue-violet is perfect wherever shadows are required and creates interesting grey-violets. Artist Notes: Tyrian Cobalt Purple is a muted, dark cool grey-violet useful in rendering stormy skies and moody atmospheric scenes with clouds and rain. It is also helpful in evening scenes and seascapes.

Opacity: Opaque

Paint Makers Notes: Tyrian Cobalt Purple is similar in hue to the historic Tyrian Purple pigment used in antiquity. This pigment was made from sea snails and was prohibitively expensive during ancient times.

Pigment Number: PB 36

Pigment Type: Synthetic Inorganic

Composition: Oxides of cobalt and chromium

Lightfastness: Not Rated

Toxicity: Non-toxic with appropriate use.

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.

Modern Colours

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.
