Schmincke Series 12 Gouache is not to be mistaken with all those "designer gouaches" on the market that often alter their colors by adding white. Series 12 is a true artists' quality gouache which contains pure traditional lightfast artists' pigments as well as some brilliant modern pigments. Schmincke Gouache is different from other gouaches in that the natural opacity of the pigments is not artificially increased as it is usually done with other designers' gouache. This permits the pigments to retain their natural luster. The covering power differs according to the pigment. In order to achieve the best color intensity, the concentration of pigments in Schmincke Gouache is especially high. It has a slightly retarded drying time in order to improve its evenness and flow properties. After drying, its surface is matte. Schmincke Gouache is extra-finely ground, therefore, it may not only be applied with a brush but also sprayed with the finest airbrush nozzle. All Schmincke Gouache colors come packed in 15ml tubes.
