Welcome to dickblick
Royal Talens Gouache is made with a unique dextrin-based binder that sets it apart from most other brands of gouache. This traditional formulation becomes more fluid as it is mixed, allowing you to cover large areas more evenly without dragging. And because dextrin-based binder is also less expensive than gum arabic binder, Royal Talens Gouache is an incredible value — great for artists and designers on a budget.
Royal Talens Gouache dries quickly to a matte finish, and all 60 colors are extremely opaque.

Simply the best!

Comments about Royal Talens Gouache:
This is the best gouache available, period! I have tried them all, and will never use anything else. It blends beautifully, and thins to a ultra-creamy texture. Painting with this gouache brings back the simple joy of putting brush to paper. I love this product!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I plan on buying more
from Houston, TX
I've been using gouache for quite some time, and when I decided to buy a more quality set, I happened to find Royal Talens. Although, I was worried about the fact that I had not heard so much about it as I did other brands, I was pleased that it met my expectations. The paint is very opaque and has easy reactivation. It does not leave streaks and is really clean. This is a great value, and I'll probably be buying more in the future.

Blick sells the Royal Talens brand of gouache, and they have all the colors I need. My order arrived 6 days after I placed it, which is good. I will use Blick again for my next purchase of gouache or oils.

Good laying gouache
I've asked around a number of professional illustrators as to what the best gouache was. I did not get a unifed response by any means, but it came as a tie between W&N and Royal Talens. Having yet to experiment with W&N, I found RT to be easy to lay on a watercolor paper using a basic brush, also very vibrant. It seems to layer fairly well without making bottom layers bleed too much. One of its big pluses in my book is its cost compared to quality. It is sizably less expensive than other brands and is an extremely high quality. I would recommend it to other artists as well!
