First post Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong forum...
I've got a question about the Holbein acryla gouache. Have anyone used them? I bought some in ebay and I'm a little bit dissapointed about them. But perhaps it's only that I don't know how to use them properly.
Holbein acryla gouache are gouache paints that once dried are not water-soluble, just like acrylic paints. The thing is that I put the paints from the tube to the palette and they dry very fast, and also, I don't like that you can't reactivate the paint in the palette once it has dried. I don't see the benefits, but I've read about some artists that use them (Tony Diterlizzy and I think Rebecca Guay) so there has to be a reason...
Also, by the way, I'm currently trying to learn to use the gouache. Are you supposed to always mix it with a lot of white? I tried transparent colors but they didn'nt seem right in gouache.
Thanks a lot, any advice will be appreciated!
