Talens Gouache Extra Fine is a highly pigmented paint with a matt finish. Although gouache is popular amongst artists and designers for its intense and opaque colours, they can be made slightly more transparent by adding water. Gouache is made with a high concentration of high-quality pigments and based on dextrin, which gives the paint a smooth consistency and reduces surface gloss.
Use gouache to create even, matt colour blocks without visible brush strokes. Mix the colours with water to thin, mix and create smooth colour transitions. Gouache is not waterproof when dry, which means you can still rework the colours with water after they have dried.
