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. Sage Green is the perfect compliment for botanical and landscape painters. This dull light green is incredibly useful for its ability to mimic natural sage greens found in nature.
Artists Note: This is a soft subtle green that is useful for highlights, and adding tints to other colours.

Pigment Numbers: PG17 + PW6:1
Pigment Type: Synthetic Inorganic
Composition: Chromium oxide and titanium dioxide rutile

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.
