View Full Version : White and black gouache question
06-29-2007, 09:00 PM
I rarely post and have never posted on this forum. What is wonderful about WC is that there is always someone who can answer your question or point the way to an answer. And here are my questions: What is the difference between zinc white and permanent white qouache, and which is more opaque? What is the difference between ivory and lamp black qouache, and which is more opaque? Thank you.

Permanent (or titanium) white is much more opaque (and some say cooler) than zinc white. Lamp black is more opaque than ivory black (which is slightly warmer).

Ditto what Richard said - I use zinc white for mixing and permanent white for highlights.
