About this event

Gouache is a very flexible water-based paint that exists somewhere between watercolour and acrylic. It has a heavy pigment load and as a result, the colour is brilliant and rich.

A relatively new variation in the formula of the paint is acrylic gouache. Its highly concentrated pigment is similar to traditional gouache, but it is mixed with an acrylic-based binder, unlike traditional gouache, which is mixed with gum arabic. It is water-soluble when wet and dries to a matte, opaque and water-resistant surface when dry.

The matte finish is the perfect surface for applying oil based pencil crayons, acrylic paint pens and chalk pastels, which allows for an endless variety of effects.

As this workshop is about the application of paint and not a drawing lesson, participants will be given the option to use a base drawing to work with. Everything else you’ll need to create your unique work of art will be supplied.

$80/person - All materials are included.
