Miya Arts Gouache Tangled

4 Comments

A couple weeks ago I gave you a basic intro to a new product from Miya Arts. They very graciously sent me their gouache and watercolor paints to play with and I chose the gouache to go with first.

As they dry and harden, they also crack and split. And that is totally normal. When I was ready to use them it was as simple as spritzing them with water, then using a wet brush to pick up color.

You may remember this wet tile I showed you. I work with a decent amount of water on the tile, then add the color and spray more water if I need it. I really loved the colors on this tile and just moved this off to the side to dry.

And this is how it looked. I used three colors – blue, purple and yellow. I liked it this way but I wanted more. More brightness. More oomph. Hahaha! You know I did! Although I was really loving that line of color along the left hand side!

I added a bit more blue and more of the yellow. The only water I added was what I used to wet the gouache in my set. Then I let it dry naturally. Interesting that it pulled purple out and moved it along that left side. I really, really love these colors.

Yesterday I used my Sarasa fineliner and a technical pen from Zebra Pen, along with a Sakura gelly roll white pen and tangled up some nebula and printemps. I love the color and it was easy to tangle over. I wasn’t sure how that would work. I did find that a larger nib worked better for drawing on top of the gouache. And while I was at it I prepped six tiles with the Miya Arts watercolors to work on next. I always need some color ready to go! Hahahaha! These colors from Miya Arts are super! And affordable!

  1. I agree these colours are really super – plus I love the way the black & white are beautifully bold with Printemps & Nebula tangled, the bolder fineliner certainly came into it’s own with this.

    • it did and I couldn’t have tangled this without the fineliner. that tip made a huge difference
