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 is the Best
M. Graham gouache has a wonderful flow, consistency and opacity that I have not found in other gouache paints I have tried. It is my favorite brand of gouache paint thus far.

I'm new to gouache

I like this gouache but I have never used this medium before. In order to get the colors I wanted I mostly stuck with this brand. So far I'm liking it quite a bit

Best rewetable gouach on the market! Talens will be my second choice.

from Sacramento, CA
I've recently converted from soft pastel to goauche painting and am so thrilled to find an opaque re-wettable medium that can created detailed work. After researching a variety of brands and weighing costs, M Graham turned out to be the most suitable because of its honey humectant, variety of artist's rather than designers' gouache, and reasonable price range. Dick Blick has the least expensive price that I found online.

Outstanding color, no chalk
from San Diego
I've tried other gouache brands, except Schminke, and this one is the absolute best I've tried. The color intensity and pigment load are incredible, and when they dry, the richness remains. No chalky after-effects. The darkest darks remain velvety and intense. The thing I love most about this brand compared to others, is how well it re-wets in half pans. I paint plein air, and I carry a sketchbox everywhere with half pans that I filled with M. Graham gouache. It re-wets and functions beautifully, no scrubbing necessary to load the brush and lay on gorgeous color. Other brands, regardless of cost, won't perform like this. I'm told that Schminke is equally good at rewetting, but why pay twice the cost?
