Schmincke Calligraphy Gouache

Item Code: SG27


SG27. Schmincke Calligraphy Gouache

This difficult-to-find German gouache is highly recommended by Michael Sull for its brightness, smooth flow, and lightfastness. Because mica instead of metal particles is used, the metallics will not darken over time, and because the mica can be more finely ground, it flows through a pen much better. Also recommended by Katrina Berry and others. Schmincke Gold Pearl is our bestselling gold gouache. 20 ml tubes.

When using a fresh tube, squeeze out the clear stuff (glycerin) until you get dense pigment. This glycerin helps keep the gouache from drying in the tube but will keep your work from drying as well. This gouache reconstitutes easily and quickly if it has dried in your pen or on your palette.
