Understanding the difference between water colour and gouache whites

water colour and gouache whites
The difference between the gouache and watercolour whites is the amount of pigment in the two ranges. Gouache is more opaque which is why it is used for block colour.

Both ranges are intermixable; gouache can be used with watercolour and vice versa when painting in layers or the two can be mixed together to achieve varying degrees of opacity.

Due to their opacity, the Designers’ Gouache whites are frequently used with water colour to create highlights on water colour paintings.
