Gouache binder "ready-to-use"

Thinner: Water


    • Shake well before use.
    • Gouache binder “ready-to-use” is ready to use, but can be diluted with water if necessary.
    • Grind a teaspoonful of pigment and a small amount of product with a paint knife on a grinding plate made of glass or a flat glazed tile to a smooth paste.
    • The mixing ratio of binder to pigment very much depends on the type of pigment. Start off with approx. 2 part binder to 1 part pigment (by weight). Depending on the pigment, more binder or more pigment is added to achieve the required consistency. The right proportions have been reached if dried streaks of paint have a smooth surface and do not come off when rubbed with the dry heel of the hand.
    • The product is water-mixable and remains water-soluble after getting dry.
    • Please clean working tools as soon as possible with water or water and soap.
    • Close immediately after use.
    • Store in a cool and dry place.
    • Protect from frost.
    • Individual pre-tests are required.
