'FLAT' GOUACHE ROSES ARE IN STYLE

Vintage-style 'flat' gouache-painted roses made a major comeback on the runways for spring 2020. Everyone from Richard Quinn to Dries Van Noten showcased a version of the pretty print.

What is 'flat' gouache?

It's a technique that involves the layering of pre-mixed colours to build beautiful dimension. Paint is applied dry on dry for clean and defined colours and tones.

Why use this 'flat' gouache painting style?

  • It's screen-printable which means it's cheaper to produce. Many clients with lower budgets seek this specific style.
  • You'll broaden your offering and attract more customers to your business.
  • It will diversify your portfolio.
  • It's fun to try a new technique!
