Hints, Tips & Techniques for Designers' Gouache

Designers' Gouache are a range of opaque water colours, so called because they were developed for and continue to be used by designers, illustrators and commercial artists to create crisp, vibrant visuals and illustrations in solid colour.

It is also widely used in fine art as an opaque water colour and is instrumental to art teachers to teach the theory of colour mixing.

In this hints and tips section you will find in-depth information about how to use gouache, both on its own or with water colour, along with extra information such as recommended colour palettes, layering colour and varnishing your work.
