HORADAM® GOUACHE has excellent flow and levelling properties. The 48 finest gouache colours can be diluted with water, mixed with each other and with Schmincke HKS® Designers’ Gouache. After drying, they can be rewetted with water and still be used on absorbent and non-absorbent painting grounds (paper, card, canvas). The fine pigment size allows these finest artists' colours to also be applied with a 0.15 mm fine airbrush. For a more opaque painting style, HORADAM® GOUACHE complements Schmincke HORADAM® watercolours, internationally recognised as the highest quality. Both types of artists’ colours can also easily be mixed with each other; however, because of the clearly different surface effect, they offer complementary ways of artistic expression: HORADAM® watercolours provides glaze and lets the white of the paper “shine through”, the effect of HORADAM® GOUACHE is a “rich”, opaque, pastel-like, intense pigment layer. Both of these top quality HORADAM® series have uncompromising finest artists’ qualities.
The application possibilities of HORADAM® GOUACHE are extremely versatile. Although it can be heavily diluted, gouache is mainly intended to provide opaque application of colour. Opaque, in this case, means that it is not impasto, because impasto application tends to produce cracking, unless the percentage of binder is increased by adding gum arabic (50302). While watercolour painting work goes from light to dark (the white paper is the light), in gouache painting, any process can be used. While “back painting” of lights is limited in watercolour painting, when working in gouache (and other opaque colours), light values and lights can be added later using colours. Students understand very quickly that gouache colours dry more brightly and therefore find the appropriate dosage when mixing.
