Anyone using gouache from bottles?
I just started gouache and since they have the best price/quality ratio in available brands here, I chose Talens extra fine series as my paint. However, they aren't available in tubes in my market. So I bought the bottles.
But I'm having hard time getting paint from the bottle to the palette. I tried painting knives, even shirt collar holders (little plastic inside the collar) as tools. But everytime considerable amout of paint is wasted in two ways: While cleaning the tool and on the palette, because the paint is placed with a spreading move instead of squeezing from a tube, which promotes more drying.
So I wonder if there is a solution to this.
