I haven’t tried all the brands in Drawing Fan’s review, but I agree on all points with the brands I have used (everything but the Caran d’Ache and Arteza). I think you can use that review as a good reference in making your decision. If you want to be able to lift colors, then don’t buy Acryla (aka Acrylic) Gouache. Expect to spend some time learning how much water to use with the paint. It needs less water than traditional watercolor – in some cases, you can paint directly from the tube with no water at all. But that gives you more of an oil painting effect where you can see brush strokes. So you’ll want to experiment to get just the right amount of water for a smooth, flat effect. Good luck and have fun!
Thanks Sandra. I don’t trust reviews randomly but thanks for your suggestion. By the way, I can’t see your replies on the post. It is coming on my wall. But anyway, thanks. I also heard that gouache ones are mixture of both acrylic and water paints. If yes then it is essential to add water? Or oil?
