This Artwork is Made On 2011-01-15 By RainbowArt
Gouache, also spelled guache, the name of which derives from the Italian guazzo, water paint, splash or bodycolor the term preferred by art historians is a type of paint consisting of pigment suspended in water. A binding agent, usually Gum Arabic, is also present, just as in watercolor.
Gouache differs from watercolor in that the particles are larger, the ratio of pigment to water is much higher, and an additional, inert, white pigment such as chalk is also present. Like all watermedia, it is diluted with water.
There are examples of gouaches diluted with rainfall, as well as very unusual examples with things other than water, such as Coca Cola and Diet Coke. This makes gouache heavier and more opaque, with greater reflective qualities.
