Schmincke Finest Artists’ Calligraphy Gouache Colours are brilliant and mainly opaque, and their fine consistency perfectly suits the different forms of application in calligraphy.The following guide was taken from a Schmincke Finest Artists’ Calligraphy Gouache product sheet I recently discovered in an old box.You can create as many different colours as you need by using just six paints in the Schmincke Calligraphy Gouache Set.These six colours are each in a cold and warm variant:- yellow- red- blueFrom these you can mix the secondaries.Look at the paint blocks below. Each individual colour has a tiny amount of a second colour mixed with it. The first colour, lemon-yellow, is yellow-blue. Cadmium yellow light is yellow-red. To make good, strong secondary mix together the two primary colours which are associated.
