Gouache is an opaque watercolor paint that has a history of over 600 years. Different from watercolors, which allow you to see the “white” of the paper below the paint, gouache can be applied in solid colors, which allows the artist to paint in layers from dark to light. Enjoy exploring this medium with this box!
