Welcome to dickblick
Based mostly on single pigment colors, this small line of opaque watercolor gouache is a professional's dream. Every color is dense, rich, and highly pigmented. No fillers, opacifiers, or adulterants alter the nature of the colors.
In the 18th and 19th centuries, French artists like Boucher, Watteau, and Chardin often worked in gouache, while the English favored transparent watercolor. Now M. Graham has bridged two cultures with a new line of gouache that is based on the same pigments as its watercolor formulas. The opaque matte finish can stand alone, or be combined with transparent watercolor to create permanent works of art.
In addition to gum arabic, which is used as a binder in all other professional gouaches, M. Graham adds pure natural honey. Honey prevents cracking and increases flow and moistness.
Basic Set of 5
An excellent starter palette, this set contains five 15 ml colors including Azo Yellow, Naphthol Red, Cobalt Blue, Ivory Black, and Titanium White.

M. Graham gouache
Comments about M. Graham Artists' Gouache:
I would give this gouache 4.5 stars. As other reviewers have noted, it has a creamy consistency, mixes well, and the colors pop on the support medium. Reconstitution on the palette with a couple of drops of water is a breeze. Coverage is also very good, allowing for the correction of mistakes. The only drawback is that some colors come out of the tube not mixed well with the medium; this seems to affect the more transparent colors, such as the quinacridone hues. Bottom line, though, it's the best gouache I've ever used. I use this gouache for miniature paintings in the style of Medieval and Renaissance manuscript illuminations. I have used it on pergamenata, Bristol board, hot-pressed watercolor paper, and even card stock. It performs well on all of these.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Bright and beautiful
I am new to watercolor and even newer to gouache. I bought the introductory set to basically just see what gouache was like and I can see why people say they love it. They are creamy and vibrant. Just so lively. I like the texture it gives to the subject.

M. Graham offers the best gouache available. Nothing compar
from Camarillo, CA
When looking for the ideal gouache, one with pitch-perfect pigment use, creamy brush load, and the ideal matte finish, M. graham is the go to brand. It delivers perfection. The company is small and they take pride in their small batch paints.
Better than winsor newton. Clean, juicy,smooth and just seem so natural.
