Holbein Artists' Gouache - 5 colors set : Holbein's opaque matte gouache is Japan's foremost designers' color medium. These paints deliver a brilliant, rich matte finish using naturally opaque pigments — no opaquing agents are added. This creates vibrant, exciting color that won't muddy when mixed. Truly professional grade, this gouache does not darken, bleed, or crack. Use it in dense opaque layers to build surface body, or thin it with water to semi-transparency. Available in a wide range of colors in 15 ml tubes. Gift Idea — Sets of Holbein Gouache are a great way to sample a selection of these vibrant colors.
