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 Sacha Poliakova 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.

A French company we discovered in a little art shop on the French Caribbean island of St. Bart's. Its exotic name refers to a Southeast Asian gecko said to bring good luck to one's home.

Djeco's collection of toys, puzzles, games, art kits and room decorations grew from an emphasis on graphic art, design quality, and a beautiful aesthetic. Faithful to their artistic approach, the passionate and inventive Djeco creative team calls on talented illustrators to enhance their large catalog of products.

They create with a spirit of freedom that makes space for fun and the most eccentric ideas. Together, they seek, experiment, share... And out of this chaos, toys are invented with a thousand and one colors to make children dream, laugh and discover the world.
