Made with a pure water-soluble acrylic resin, Acryla Gouache is brilliant, lightfast and permanent, and moves, reacts, blends and feels like traditional gouache. However, unlike a traditional gouache which is made with a gum Arabic binder. It does not have a fragile paint film, is compatible with any water-soluble media and is waterproof when dry. It also does not shift in color tone from liquid to dry color. Ideal for artists, designers, illustrators, students and hobbyists. This 5-color set includes 20ml tubes of primary magenta, primary yellow, primary cyan, primary white and primary black.
Holbein Primary Colors offer excellent handling qualities, very high chroma, superlative hues and exceptional lightfastness. Since the density and the handling characteristics are well balanced, mixing two of these colors equally will produce secondary colors easily. Mixing three of these colors equally will produce black and dark grey. Producing a comprehensive grey scale has never been easier.
Holbein has also created a Primary Black and Primary White. These two colors have been produced because, unlike Ivory Black and Permanent White, they offer the same specific gravity as the other three Primary Colors. The result is a set that will produce colors identical in volume and weight when mixed together.
