I bought a set of Arteza gouache when it came up as a Lightning sale on Amazon for $29.99 for 60 tubes (0.4 ml each, or 12ml). At the price of 50 cents a tube, it seemed like it was worth a try. The paints are made in China and they claim to be lightfast, except for 4 of the colors in the set (peaches and pinks) which are rated at two stars instead of three.
I can't really compare it to other brands of gouache since I've never used gouache before, but I enjoyed experimenting. I made a lot of mistakes but learned quite a bit about handling gouache in this bird painting. It's pretty easy to make mud, lol!
And clearly there is quite a learning curve.
I swatched out all of the colors so I've included my chart here, in case anyone is wondering about this brand. I put the twelve metallics at the bottom of the chart; their names all start with "Pearl" except for gold, silver and bronze.
I'd love to hear opinions of anyone who has used this brand, and I always welcome C&C on my painting.
