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 soft, olive green is useful in a variety of subject matter including landscapes, botanicals, and wildlife studies.
Artists Notes: A wonderful choice for landscape and botanical works, its yellow undertone adds a warmth that is missing from earth greens such as Florentine Green.
Paint Makers Notes: Olive Green is a combination of Chromium Oxide Green (PG 17) and Lemon Ochre (PY 43)
Pigment Numbers: PG 17 + PY 43
Pigment Type: Synthetic Inorganic
Composition: Chromium oxide and iron oxide hydroxide
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.
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.
