Gouache is a type of paint with pigment, gum arabic (a binding agent) and chalk. Thicker and more opaque than watercolors, it dries to a matte finish which makes it easy to reproduce electronically by scanning. Often used by commercial artists for posters, illustrations, and comics, gouache is water based making it a good choice for kids as well.

This art kit has a step-by-step guide designed by the illustrator Aiko Fukawa to show her technique and contains many tips to ensure a beautifully done project every time. The kit is perfect for taking on vacation or for bringing out on rainy days. Make time for some quiet time!

4 working sheets, 4 punch out sheets, 10 gouache bottles, 2 brushes, 1 glue stick, and a color step-by-step instruction booklet.
