Lascaux Gouache is truly different from other gouaches. Developed by color experts in consultation with teachers and professional artists, this artist-quality acrylic gouache is richly hued, extremely lightfast, and non-bleeding. Because it's highly concentrated, it's also very economical to use!
Color Swatch created using full strength/50/50 and was applied on cold press Bristol board (2 ply) material.
