Turner Acryl Gouache
Acrylic Gouache is matt acrylic paint and Turner Acryl Gouache is one of the highest quality ranges available today. A professional quality acrylic gouache with a wide range of 219 colours, making them ideal for illustrative painting and design work. Made in Japan to the highest specifications.
The use of ultra-fine pigments means colours spread out smoothly, wide areas can be covered uniformly with a beautiful opaque matt finish. Quick drying and water mixable, yet water resistant once dry. Multiple layers can be over-painted with no bleeding or streaking, they also offer reliable adhesion to a wide variety of surfaces including metal, glass, plastic and wood.
Turner Acryl Gouache is a paint that has the appearence of a matt gouache but the permanence of an acrylic. Simon Williams, a well known botanical artist was asked to try these paints out and write a review which came out in the June edition of The Artist magazine.
These paints are much favoured by Simon - They have the ability to produce excellent detail and the colours can be layered very well over the top of each other. Washes can still be applied over the detail and gradually the colour build up keeps it's opacity. A very good point to this medium is that upon the detail work the thin washes can still be applied without lifting the underneath layers and it remains matt and opaque like Gouache and each time another wash or dry brush detail is rendered the opacity improves.
