A favorite among designers and fine artists since 1935, Winsor & Newton’s Designers’ Gouache has been consistently formulated with a commitment to pigment strength and purity of color. As an opaque watercolor, gouache is used by designers, illustrators and commercial artists to create vibrant illustrations in solid color.
Designers’ Gouache is a combination of quality pigment and gum arabic, the binding agent that holds the pigment. Winsor & Newton Designers’ Gouache colors are opaque due to the high levels of pigmentation in the formula, which results in unsurpassed covering power and clean color mixing.
Gouache dries to a smooth matte finish, which reduces the reflection when photographing work. Due to the qualities of the gum arabic binder, gouache colors are quick drying. This allows for quick working techniques and sketching.
