Gouache Colours

Gouache colour is a kind of water based paint which contains the same ingredients as basic transparent watercolour but chalk is added to the pigments to make them more opaque.

It is fast-drying, denser and more reflective than transparent watercolour, and has always been used widely by manuscript illuminators and by miniature painters. Nowadays it is used mostly by professional designers working on illustrations for graphic reproduction.
