They've been making the Designers Gouache since 1935 - a tantalising range of 89 opaque watercolours. Gouache paint is similar to watercolour paint, but it is opaque rather than transparent. Popular among designers, illustrators and commercial artists, our gouache paint is perfect for creating bold, vibrant artworks. All these tones are intermixable and you can pair them with our watercolours for a flat, matte colour effect. Developed for professional designers working on illustrations for graphic reproduction. It is also widely used in fine art painting, both on its own and with transparent watercolours.
