What is the difference between acrylic paint, acrylic gouache, and traditional gouache?

Acrylic paint, acrylic gouache, and traditional gouache each have unique properties. Acrylic paint is versatile and fast-drying, often leaving a glossy finish. Acrylic gouache combines features of acrylic paint and traditional gouache, providing the matt finish of gouache while remaining waterproof once dry. Traditional gouache, on the other hand, offers a smooth, matt finish and can be reactivated with water, like watercolour. The primary differences lie in finish, water resistance, and reactivation potential.
