Catalog on categories: «Gouache»
Gouache is a term in the visual arts that describes a type of paint consisting of a color pigment and a connecting substance (traditionally it is gum arabic or dextrin). Unlike watercolors, gouache also contains whitewash, giving it a matte shade. Artists working with this type of paint sometimes use various additives (acrylic, starch, honey) to increase the drying time of the paint or give it specific properties (saturation, opacity, etc.).
