Welcome to dickblick
Schmincke Horadam Gouache is more than just opaque watercolor. Since no white is added to Horadam Gouche to artifically boost its covering power, it can create crisp color blends like no other gouache. Of the 48 colors, all but 8 are based on a single pigment.
Like Horadam Watercolors, colors thin with water and are easily rewetted if left to dry on the palette. Horadam Gouache is so finely ground, it can even be used for 0.15 mm airbrush work.
Many other brands of gouache are "designer" gouaches, with an emphasis on accurate pre-mixed colors for use by the designer. By contrast, Horadam is a "fine artist" gouache, with an emphsis on providing the classic range of pigments as pure, single-pigment colors.

Schmincke Gouache is Best Gouache
from Seattle, WA
Schmincke makes great paint products. The gouache is a wonderful consistency and great colors and pigmentation. They are a bit expensive, but worth it for some of those irresistable colors. PBr24 is one of my favorites and I've only found it in Schmincke. The only thing I don't like is their deceptive mixes - raw umber is a mix of PBr7, PY42, and PBk11. It's a nice color but doesn't mix well when you're expecting a single pigment.

Schmincke Horodam Gouache is superb
from Potomac, MD
I do illuminated manuscripts on calfskin vellum, and brilliant, dense color is essential for my work. Schmincke Horodam, in particular, and Linel are almost the only gouache that I use -- it makes almost all shades in the other, more commonly available brands look and feel like sidewalk chalk. For years I had to buy this stuff in London and Paris, before it was carried in the US, and it is a blessing to be able to get it from Blick at a reasonable price.
Amazing pigment load
I use these for calligraphy. For watercolors, I haven't run across another brand that has the same pigment load that allows for shading and color intensity once it gets watered down enough to use in a nib as ink.I haven't seen a down side of this yet, other than the price means it takes me much longer to fill a full color palette of tubes than it ever did for other brands.

Best quality gouache
High pigment concentration with no opacity additives. Good rewetable qualities. A high quality product. Once I used it I use no other.

Intense pigment and easy activation
from Dallas, TX
The price matches the quality. You are most definitely getting what you pay for. It is pigment heavy and applies beautifully. I like to place my gouache into a palette an dry so that i may use again at a later date. This brand reactivates without issue. I tend to buy this brand for my my base primary pigments to mix other colors. (ex. cadmium red/yellow and dark blue indigo). I do no have deep pockets so I only buy these for colors i know I need to rely on but if I did I would buy all of them for my palette.
from Sao Paulo Brazil
Really good coverage, perfect cap that wont get stuck, Schmincke rules!

Best gouache I own
I put together a 14 color gouache palette from scratch and 4 of the tubes of paint were from Schmincke Horadam.Compared to the other brands, they seem to have the best consistency, the colors are so rich that they are a joy to work with, and they are far and away my favorite tubes of paint. If I had it to do over, I would have stayed completely loyal to this brand.The only possible complaint is that they do not seem to carry as high a pigment load as M. Graham paints, but they are much friendlier to work with as a result.
