Re: Gouache book?

Schminke's Designers' Gouache are basically very good. Schminke Horadam are perfect, right. But their Designers' can be very good, lightfast, permanent, not much value-change after drying, handling, etc..., too, if you avoid picking up the colours which are made with dyes and not only with pigments. Must be 20 % of their range. They're quickly recognizable as being the very bright, almost neon, new colours, with not classical names like Raw Sienna or Deep Ultramarine. If in doubt, though, consult the composition on each colour. They're very nice, though, for commercial work where permanence is not a priority.
