Re: Why Gouache? Benefits? Why do you like it?

Richard in NC,
Thanks much for the tip. I have a tube of opaque white (water color) so I will give the project a try with that. The whole resist technique that is up for Challenge this month is very new to me so I was at a loss when it called for Gouache. Now, even though I paint mostly decoratively in acrylics, I just may want to give Gouache a try, too! Sounds like an incredible medium with a bad rap. Would like to determine for myself, in the meantime I'll try the opaque watercolor for my project. Kristin
