A favourite medium for colour fans of all ages
Designed for introductions to art and teaching, the Caran d’Ache Gouache Studio is a favourite medium for colour fans of all ages and all creative universes.
Gouache Studio gouache tablets are characterised by a unique, durable formula and their texture contains no plasticisers whatsoever. Instead only natural vegetal binding agents are used which maintain their smoothness and velvety finish while avoiding any cracking. Luminous and very finely ground, highly concentrated pigments combine with these vegetal binding agents to form colours of incomparable beauty. Opaque and matt by nature, the gouaches are water-soluble and have excellent coverage, while painted surfaces remains flexible after drying. This means that a project in progress can then be worked on again subsequently.
The Caran d’Ache Gouache Studio is suitable for high-density watercolour effects on solid backgrounds. Combinations with water-resistant pastels make it possible to achieve rich washed out effects, multiple paint layers or batik by using overlaying and scraping techniques.
The Gouache Studio assortments are entirely developed and manufactured in the workshops of the Maison Caran d’Ache in line with the requirements of the Swiss Made label and environmental standards.
