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. Raw Sienna Warm is among the most useful earth pigments on an artist’s palette. It produces warm foundation tints and is invaluable for landscape and portrait painting.
Artists Note: This useful colour mixes well with others and is well at home in wildlife paintings and pet portraits.
Paint Makers Notes: Along with ochres and umbers, sienna pigments were first used during pre-history. Siennas take their name from the Renaissance city state of Siena, in modern Italy.

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.
Traditional Gouache colours have been used by artists for hundreds, and in some cases, thousands of years. These are primarily inorganic pigments such as iron oxides, green earths, as well as the popular umber and sienna pigments of the Renaissance. In some instances, they include the modern equivalent of a traditional pigment. For example, Titanium White, which replaces toxic Lead White in artist’s materials.
