Gouache

A current client wanted a citrus green ink color for her wedding invitation envelope addresses, so I ventured into the world of gouache. I found the biggest selection of gouache at my local Dick Blick store, and settled on an olive color that had slightly more yellow than the other color options.

I used Blue Eye Brown Eye's helpful (and quick!) gouache tutorial to mix my ink. It is definitely a trial and error process, and I put too much water in my mixing pot to begin with. Luckily I was able to add more gouache to thicken it up. 

I think the final color variations turned out beautifully!
