As you know I thing for gouache. This is my third set. I’m still debating on reviewing the first set because the plastic odor was too strong so I haven’t been able to use it for awhile because I can’t handle the smell. I may just do a really quick review. I don’t know…still thinking about it.
This is the video swatching of the Miya Gouache.
To test the gouache out, I painted four 5×5 paintings. Two are of the Northern Lights and two are of the Milky Way. They were done on Arches 300 gsm/140 lb hot pressed watercolor paper (smooth). My first try on hot pressed paper was a mess and I didn’t finish it. I almost thought about switching to cold pressed paper (rough) because I painted with gouache on cold pressed before and was comfortable with it, but I’m glad I hung in there because I actually like the way the paintings turned out on the hot pressed better. These paintings were given away as birthday cards to my siblings.
