Winsor Newton Designer Gouache 14ml Tubes Series 1

Designers Gouache colours are a range of opaque water colours, so called because they were developed for and continue to be used by designers, illustrators and commercial artists to create crisp vibrant visuals and illustrations in solid colour.
However, gouache is also widely used in fine art as an opaque water colour, or in combination with Artists' Water Colour.
It is also used widely by colleges to teach the theory of colour mixing.
First introduced by Winsor & Newton in 1935 as 'Designers' Opaque Water Colour'; the range rapidly achieved the standard of reputation common to Winsor & Newton and more than 70 years later is accepted as the finest quality Designers Gouache on the market.
Today the Designers Gouache range benefits from significant developments in technology, manufacturing methods and the availability of the finest grade pigments to enable us to produce the widest and most lightfast palette available.
The range contains both pure single pigment colours for the brightest, strongest mixes as well as accurate premixed colours as we also recognise that convenience is required at times. The range today is also smoother, flatter, more opaque and stronger than ever before.

The versatility of designers Gouache means that it can be used with brush, airbrush and ruling pen on most types of paper and board. As the colours are water soluble, they can also be mixed with other water colours to produce further combinations of opacity and transparency.
