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 custom colour is a dull blue-green useful in a range of applications from illustration work to landscapes, and is invaluable for seascapes, atmospheric skies, and botanicals. Inspired by the cool leaves of blue spruce trees in winter, this muted colour is an excellent choice for any artist’s palette.
Artist Notes: This muted hue is an excellent choice for giving leaves and plants the appearance of evening shadows and can easily add a hint of blue to foliage.

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.
