Matt - further to a reply from MikeC - it's a "posh" name for watercolour paint !

I asked exactly that question in a thread - I'll have a look for it and put in the link - if I find it. :roll:

...and since we are on the subject of Gouache, it turns out to be the paint I have been using on the Pentrecourt Halt diorama all along.
I thought that the little tubes were acrylic!
I have now gone out and bought some little tubes of acrylic and a big tube of white and one of black.

Having said that, I found the Gouache fun to use but wonder about it's longevity, anyone know?
cheers

I just rang my wife (an artist) on her mobile -she is at the Royal Show. Gouache is an ancient paint, made, as I said, from egg whites. It is not waterproof, but is considered by the arts mafia to be "archival" That suggests longevity. Hope this helps. Max

I think it's Tempera that's made from egg whites.

Should be ok anyway, provided it stays dry.

According to my dictionary it's tempera for egg white and water colour mixed with gum for Gouache. Anyway I have put both in the Glossary.

Whatever you do don't lose your temper(a) boys!:roll:   Isn't Gouache something you get when you have too much goo?:lol::lol::lol: 

Actually, simply put Gouache is an opaque watercolour and is quite colour fast.

thanks guys

i have been doing some digging:hmm as mentioned above Gouache is a water colour paint, apparently Gouache can be manipulated and altered when dry by adding water. this apparently makes it ideal for weathering. the disadvantage is it needs sealing after completion to avoid miss haps when handling. i may have a dabble as the person who's thread i got the info from is probably the best weathering expert i have seen:cool wink

from another forum but worth a read if you have 6 hours spare

klear floor polish, now i have never user this as floor polish but i used it in the army on my boots for that monday morning shine. another use for this is adding to a loco to give a surface for pastels etc to stick to. another use is to apply to a loco before adding transfers. 2 advantages over varnish is 1 cheap 2 easy to apply with a brush. this would look like a gloss varnish so would need a matt varnish over the top. i think a coat of this before weathering would work well and it would also seal transfers etc.

a while back i got hold of some v tanks to go with my 37$post_text and i never got round to taking some pics after weathering so here we go

 



 



 



 



 



and i decided that as i have a workbench thread i had better build myself a workbench. well the boss was nagging all the time about my junk being spread across the kitchen:twisted: i could never find anything when i needed it so i have now got it all sorted. the only place i could have it was above the freezer. the height is ideal for standing and also sitting on the kitchen stall. the front slides out to work and slides back so you can get into the freezer.

Like the weathering of the wagons, nicely understated, spot on, your new work-table also looks good much better than the old table + you can't get into trouble now!!!!!

That looks a nice Diesel shed you are working on, whose is it or is it scratch built.

Gouache
Just to confirm that this is what I have been using for the bridge in the Pentrecourt Halt Diorama. A base coat of Tamiya Grey acrylic and then once dry, everything else has been the Gouache.
It's great for weathering but you do have to be careful that any subsequent coats are quick and light because the previous layers become workable again once in contact with water.

Interestingly, this has been the paint that I've used to colour my sisal string and "furry" dish cloths when making reeds and grass.
Once dry, a toothbrush, briskly applied, separates the fibres and allows the grass/reeds to stand tall.
I'm not sure if this can be done using acrylics?

PS great effort with the bench Matt, difficult for the munchkin to reach it too :lol:
