  • The most intense colors, this gouache has a flat, matte effect. No brush strokes. No cracks. No need to dilute.The innovative formula has a super-concentration of pure, ultra-fine pigments dispersed evenly in a flexible acrylic vehicle. A superb fluidity and application of opaque to semi-opaque colours: all with a permanent, water-resistant finish when dry. Because it doesn’t reflect the light, it’s perfect for scanning and mixing with digital effects – making it ideal for illustration and design work. Acrylic Gouache pushes the opacity of each color to its limits. The result is a full range of opaque and semi-opaque colors, giving you the best possible combination of opacity versus flexibility, with minimum show-through.
  • A lasting, crack-free finish. Due to the high level of pigment, most gouaches can crack when drying. Liquitex sets a new benchmark: The acrylic vehicle brings flexibility to the paint film, giving you a reliable, non-cracking finish. Other gouaches need water to ease their way.  Liquitex acrylic gouache gives you a creamy, fluid texture with superb brushout, straight from the bottle. Application feels effortless and flowing, with no drag - making it perfect for large area coverage or fine detail. And because you don’t need to add water, your colors keep their true vibrancy.
  • Excellent for solid colour blocking, layering, illustration, painting and mixed media applications.
  • Uncap container for more precise paint quantities, or unscrew like a jar when filling large areas
