Winsor & Newton Designers' Gouache colours are a range of opaque water colours, mainly used by designers, illustrators and commercial artists to create vibrant illustrations in solid colour. Gouache is also widely used in fine art as an opaque water colour.
Winsor & Newton have been producing Designers Gouache since 1935 and to this day we continue to offer the finest artists' gouache range available.
Designers Gouache colours are a range of opaque water colours, mainly used by designers, illustrators and commercial artists to create vibrant illustrations in solid colour. Gouache is also widely used in fine art as an opaque water colour.
Today the Designers Gouache range benefits from significant developments in technology and is smoother, flatter, more opaque and more brilliant than ever before.
Bright and vivid colors. Full and matt coverage. Formulated by chemists and approved by artists, this new range precisely matches the physical and chemical characteristics of cadmium-based paints, but without the cadmium. Available in Lemon, Yellow Pale, Yellow Deep, Yellow, Orange, Red, and Scarlet.
All Designers Gouache colours are fully intermixable. Designers Gouache, Professional Water Colour, and Cotman Water Colour can also be fully intermixed.
The opacity of Designers Gouache is due to the exceptionally high levels of pigmentation in the formulation, which results in both covering power and clean colour mixing. The natural attribute of each pigment adds to the level of opacity and contributes to covering power.
As a result of the high level of pigmentation and the Gum Arabic binder Designers Gouache dries to a matt finish. This reduces reflection when photographing gouache art work.
Its ease of use, brilliance, quick drying and matt finish make it the most popular designers' and illustrators' colour. The opaque matt finish makes for more accurate reproduction at artwork stage as it minimizes reflections.
Use it in conjunction with water colour or on its own as opaque water colour. Its brilliance and opacity give it solidity, excellent for abstract work and extra details. Strong effects also result from the contrast of working on coloured backgrounds which are left partly exposed.
Gouache is used by calligraphers because of its excellent flow, opacity and permanence.
The high pigmentation and gum arabic base make it a common choice with professional marblers.
I use gouache along with watercolors, and I sometimes use white gouache to cover up already painted areas I don't like. This was my first time trying Winsor & Newton gouache. This gouache is creamy and spreads easily without needing to add a lot of water. It covers dry...

I love it because it is opaque and can be used on dark cardstock. Also, it can be diluted with water and used for the splatter technique on cards.

I'm so glad I discovered gouache. Really beats trying to lighten areas with white watercolor. Just doesn't work well as far as opacity goes, but this product does the job!

A reasonable substitute for gold leaf. It is shiny, but not as brilliant as leaf.

It’s the same price as the store unless you use a Michael’s 40% off coupon which I have done many times and you get a bigger tube. I have also bought cheap watercolor sets just for the white. Not all whites are made equal and you get what you pay for- a little goes a long...

Needed some extra gouache when I ran out of mine during an art class. I ordered this, it came in a timely manner and was the right consistency I needed. A bit smaller than I expected, but that's my fault since they clearly state the size. I was able to get some good use out...
