Gouache (pronounced “gwarsh”) is an opaque water based and water soluble paint that is very high in pigment intensity and dries flat and matt. Although ideal for painting colour “sketches” that can be referred to back in the studio, it is also often the medium for finished works. Sometimes gouache is used as one uses watercolour where added water makes the paint transparent.
“Acrylic gouache” is really a flat, matt acrylic paint, not gouache. Once acrylic gouache dries, it cannot be reconstituted due to the polymers of acrylic paint, unlike gouache, which needs to be framed in order to protect it from unwanted moisture.
