Renesans GOUACHE are easy to use thick and well-covering paints, which produce a flexible but still water soluble layer. Besides pigment, the production of gouache involves kaolin and other raw materials to make the paint well-soluble. Our gouache is held together with gum arabic and produces a thick and opaque layer on dry or damp paper. It can be applied with aerographs to produce exceptionally saturated and smooth surfaces. Gouache also goes well with other techniques, including watercolours, acrylics, sketching, which is why it is very popular among designers and illustrators. After drying, all temperas considerably brightens and fades, so it is recommended to use liquid agents to preserve and intensify the colour.
