Gouache Paints and Cabinet Cards

Gouache Paints
I thought I'd post a replay of my gouache paint tutorial I have since I've been playing with my Gouache paints (pronounced gwash) recently. Gouache paints are fun user friendly opaque watercolor paints. Typically used by illustrators. I've found them to be a great addition to adding color to sepia and black and white photos. The cool thing about gouache paints is that you can wipe them off if you don't like what you've done and start over, they also cover well! You can paint light over dark and they make it very easy to add highlights and shadows by mixing white or black to the basic color your using....perfect for the novice painter.
