Review: Winsor & Newton Gouache for Calligraphy
-- An excellent gouache for broad-pen calligraphy (Italic, Blackletter, Gothic, Uncial, Roman Capitals) and pointed pen script (Copperplate, Engrossers, Spencerian, Modern Calligraphy)
-- Excellent for brush lettering (try Nicker Poster Paints for a ready-to-use medium for brush lettering).
-- Very opaque when used for calligraphy. Good choice for colored papers.
-- Colors are wonderfully rich when dry.
-- May take a bit more water to get to writing consistency than other gouaches.
-- Takes 3-4 minutes to dry; an envelope drying rack is helpful.
-- Dries to a matte finish; dry color is vibrant; wet color is close to dry color on paper.
-- Very wide range of colors, each priced by pigment. Lightfastness indicated.
-- For color mixing, primary sets are available:
WNG-HC1. Single Primary Set: Primary Red, Primary Blue, Primary Yellow, Ivory Black, Zinc White
WNGDP-S. Double Primary Set: with white plus a warm and cool each of red, blue and yellow.
WNGPDP-S. Permanent Double Primary Set with lightfast colors.
-- True Cadmium Red, Cadmium Yellow, Cobalt Blue are available.
-- Gouache can dry on the pen during your project. Every so often you may need to rinse off the pen.
-- Gouache is not water resistant. When it is needed, apply a fixative such as Spectrafix after gouache is completely dry.
-- Easy to clean from nib with water.
