Traditional Colours

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.
