The true Artists' Gouache! Finest German opaque matte-drying watercolors!
Opaque and matte-drying to a velvety finish, these fine water soluble paints are the favorites of artists, illustrators and designers the world over! Using a base of high quality gum arabic and dextrin solution, these colors lift and flow easily, while a special additive allows you to paint large areas without streaking.
Like all their lines, LUKAS uses only the finest in classic and modern pigments which score very highly on the international blue wool scale of light fastness. The high pigment content allows for superior covering power, and the frequent use of single pigment colors allows for clear and consistent mixing. Toxic and dangerous pigments like cadmiums and cobalt have been eliminated from this line, but their superb substitutes are indistinguishable in brilliance and intensity. LUKAS Art & Design Gouache dries to a velvety, matte finish that is perfect for reproduction, but as it's a watercolor the paint film will remain workable and the lightfast pigments ensure lasting results. All 48 brilliant colors are available in 20ml tubes, and Ivory Black and Opaque White in 75ml tubes. Experiment on dark colored surfaces, or bring out intense detail in ways not possible with transparent watercolors. Whether you are new to opaque watercolors or an old hand with gouache, LUKAS Art & Design Gouache is right for you!
