Holbein Artists' Gouache is the industry standard in water-based, opaque artist colors. The buttery smooth paint body is strongly pigmented with bright, bold color. When applied thickly, it's extremely opaque, even over dark colors. Because it's more direct and requires less complex layering than watercolor, gouache is the sketching medium preferred by many artists and art schools.
This five-color set contains full-size tubes of Primary Magenta, Primary Yellow, Primary Cyan, Primary Black, and Primary White. It's perfect for learning CMYK color mixing, the standard system in commercial art. It's also very useful for fine artists because it allows access to a greater range of high-intensity colors than traditional Red/Yellow/Blue mixing. A CMYK mixing guide is included in the box. Made in Japan.
