Acrylic Gouache is like traditional gouache in that dries to a matte finish and is opaque. However, unlike traditional gouache, the acrylic binder in the acrylic gouache makes it water resistant once dry. Like craft acrylics, it will stick to a variety of surfaces other than canvas and paper. This paint is typically used by watercolorists, cartoonists, illustrators, and artists using decorative or folk art techniques.
Craft and Decorative Acrylics are suitable for applying decorative techniques on surfaces like wood, terra cotta, paper, and metal. Some of these paints glow in the dark or add a chalk-like finish to your project.
