Welcome to dickblick
Introduced in 1935, Winsor & Newton Designers Gouache is considered by many to be the finest artist-quality gouache available. Today, thanks to significant developments in technology, the colors are smoother, flatter, more opaque, and more brilliant than ever before.
The Designers Gouache range offers a wide and balanced spectrum of colors. It includes bright colors for designers, more lightfast ones for fine artists, and a number of unique, ultra-bright colors such as Opera Pink and Opera Rose — ensuring that all artists can obtain the palette that best suits their work.
Exceptionally high pigment levels result in unsurpassed covering power and clean color mixes. The binder is pure gum arabic, which imparts a creamy, flowing consistency that glides across grounds and dries quickly to a flat, velvety, non-streaky finish.
All Winsor & Newton Designers Gouache colors are fully compatible with Winsor & Newton Professional Watercolors and Cotman Watercolors. They may also be mixed with Winsor & Newton Professional Acrylics and Galeria Flow Acrylics. Care should be taken, however, as some gouache colors may react adversely with acrylics. Combinations should be tested on palette paper prior to use in a painting.
Winsor & Newton Designers Gouache comes in 14 ml (0.47 oz) tubes. Black and White are also available in larger 37 ml (1.25 oz) tubes.

I prefer this gouache for SCA scroll illuminations
By Cat Coeur Noir
from Gulf Shores, AL
Comments about Winsor & Newton Designers' Gouache:
I have finally switched ALL my student grade gouache paints (the cheap kits you can get at hobby stores), over to WN Designer series. The difference is noticeable. Less paint provides better coverage, and it re-hydrates much more consistently in my paint trays. I use a lot larger color range to start with than a lot of calligrapher/illuminators because I like being able to blend colors in a more consistent way, and I will be adding yet more to the already fairly large color selection I have. The difference in my illumination work has pleased me immensely.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

What changed besides the new look?
from S.E. Wisconsin
Is this still an industry standard? This was the best white for covering power. It had a paste like consistency and worthy of the cost. Now it seems thin. I noticed on the tube it was produced in France.I haven't found my old tubes but wonder if it as originally made in the UK. This has made me think about trying our competitors. Still good but not the standard it once was ...

I will order this again as soon as run low
Gouache is wonderful
from Los Angeles
This brand of gouache is really nice and goes a long way. I have used since college and now I use it in my classroom if I can afford it. Only warning is to use it sparingly with students because they tend to pour it out and not really use it.
Best in class
from Ponte Vedra, FL
Although gouache is pricey it does have a nice consistency
Very hard to control.

I do small paintings from nature ( birds, flowers, shells, etc ) and each year make a calendar for family and friends.
from Norcross, Georgia
This gouache is an amazing thing to have. you can use it as a solid white that's opaque and use it to mix it with other colors as well which i've done several times. i've used it in every painting in some way since i've received it and it never fails
