Sennelier Artist Quality Gouache

Sennelier have always made superior quality gouache, sometimes called opaque watercolour due to its covering power and ability to build up layers. Most manufacturers make a designers’ gouache which uses pigments similar to transparent drawing inks, but are mainly only hues of traditional oil paint pigments. Sennelier, however, have always made gouache for artists such as Picasso, Chagall, Miro and Dufy, and have only used the same expensive, high quality pigments present in their watercolours and oils. The range is smaller than watercolour as pigments are selected for opacity. The paint dries to a matt finish.

Colours are available in 21ml tubes.

Sennelier Gouache Varnish

Formulated to combat the delicate surface problems encountered in gouache painting, particularly with the overpainting of several layers, and where protection is required which is not immediately apparent or makes changes to the painting intensity or surface appearance. The varnish is formulated from a colourless synthetic resin and is alcohol-based, giving an even matt surface film. For best results, spray with the mouth atomiser for small works or apply with a brush.
