Cindy,

I also enjoy working wih gouache. Do you have a copy of Ralph Mayer's "The Artist's Handbook"? There is a section in this book I am looking at now that has some formulas for mixing dry pigments with other ingredients to make gouache. You can look under Watercolor and Gouache/ GOUACHE/ Homemade Gouache Paints/ Recipes for mixing colors. Something I've always wanted to do, but I'm so involved with my oils and tempera now. Let me know how you do if you do. If you don't have the book I can email the pages with the info.

gouache is our friend!
