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.
