Gouache paints differ significantly from other art mediums. The mystique of gouache paint begin with its name. (It’s pronounced “gwash.”) It comes from the Italian word “aguazzo,” which means “mud.” It is also known as bodycolor in the company of art history professionals.
It is very similar to acrylics. However, the fact that it’s water-based renders it different uses than acrylics. It could also be described as concentrated watercolors, which makes it heavier and more opaque.
