hi, I'm an art student at the university of southern maine, and I am currently taking a design class which involves a lot of guache use (mainly black and white). unfortunately, I'm working on a project and realized I am completely out of white guache. i do, however, have plenty of white acrylic on hand. is it possible to mix black guache and white acrylics and make it look alright?

thanks!

Try it out on a piece of scrap paper and decide for yourself. Some acrylics are more shiny or waxy looking than others. Do you have any white acrylic gesso? That looks more like gouache than regular acrylic paint.
