How to make watercolor & gouache

Making gouache is easy; you simply need to add a filler pigment to your watercolor. This will make the paint opaque while thickening the texture of watercolor.

For this purpose, kaolin (china clay) is generally used however zinc white or talc can also serve to make gouache. Watercolor and gouache are very similar types of paints, since they use the same binder; the main difference being one is opaque and the other transparent.
