    Artist grade neon watercolors or watercolor gouache?

    So I really like watercolors and I want to incorporate obnoxiously loud, neon colors into my work. I've heard that gouache can be more vibrant than watercolors and I'm willing to work with them but not acrylic gouache.

    Thank you!!

    I don't think there is a thing like acrylic gouache. The reason that watercolours don't go obnoxious loud is that they are transparent, so you will always get a slightly desaturated colour. Try gouache, oils, acrylics, and be aware you cannot mix obnoxious loud colours because of the desaturation costs of mixing (https://www.handprint.com/HP/WCL/color14.html)

    Do you know any specific brands with neon-like colors?
