Set of 5 tubes of gouache (you pronounce it GOOWAAARRRCHE but say it quickly!)
I’ve searched for the best quality gouache that doesn’t break the bank! Akademie Gouache is a fine artists Gouache which suits perfectly to beginners, hobby artists as well as to student demands. The hallmarks of this colour are good painting and mixing properties as well as the fact that they can be rewetted when dried and can easily be washed out. Akademie Gouache dry uniformly mat and build velvet-like colour layers. These tubes should last you YEARS. You don’t need much. I’ll include a HOW TO set of instructions as well.
