New Stoneground Paint Co. Gouache

Stoneground gouache is a water-based media that dries to an opaque, matte finish. You can apply colours in layers, allowing you to refine and define your painting as you work. Because it is water-based, you can dilute gouache with water and used it wet-on-wet in the same manner as watercolour. Conversely, the chalk content in gouache means that it won’t bloom or flow like watercolour paint. You can lighten gouache by adding white, and layer it from dark to light due to its opaque nature. Colours are easily mixed with one another and can be used interchangeably with Stoneground watercolour paint.
The Stoneground Gouache 12 palette contains twelve half pans of handmade gouache in a hinged metal palette box. Measuring approximately 8 3/4” x 3 1/2”, this compact size is ideal for travel and plein air painting.

Stoneground defines modern colours as those developed and discovered after 1704, which 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.
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.
