Winsor & Newton Designers' Gouache Colour Sets

Winsor & Newton have been producing fine artist Designer Gouache since the mid-1930's. Today, the Designers' Gouache range benefits from significant developments in technology and is smoother, flatter, more opaque and more brilliant than ever before.

Designers' Gouache colours are a range of opaque watercolours, 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 watercolour. Can be used thinly for a wash at the start of a painting then applied in thicker layers towards the end. Unlike transparent watercolour, where you need to plan and reserve the white of the paper, gouache is more controllable and enables you to remove mistakes and re-paint.

Primary Colour Set

The colours have been specially selected for optimum results when colour mixing, producing strong, bright mixes.
