Linel Extra Fine Gouache

Linel Extra Fine Gouache

The new range of Linel extra-fine gouache has been modernised. Artists and teachers of Art and Graphic Design Schools tested and approved it. The reorganised Linel palette counts 78 rich and balanced shades, chosen for their intense and fine pigments and are very opaque.

The new Linel palette is more modern and includes 5 new Cadmium-free colours: an exclusive innovation created by Lefranc Bourgeois in 2017. That’s an eco-responsible alternative that keeps all the strength and power of cadmium colours. The range also includes three new metallic colours. They are made from solid and light resistant pigments. These new chromatic values allow a qualitative and long-lasting rendering.

What is Gouache?

Gouache is obtained by grinding pigments, gum Arabic and a white filler. Linel is one of the last gouaches to include gum Arabic in its formulas which gives it incomparable quality.
Used for landscapes, models, preparatory sketches. The opacity of the gouache gives it an important quality in painting: light colours can overlap indefinitely with dark colours. It can also be used in overlays of semi-transparent washes, after dilution in water.
