Can I Use Gouache on Paper?

You can paint with gouache on paper, but it is recommended that you use a heavy paper instead of a light paper. Heavy paper is recommended such as paper used for watercolor painting. You can choose either a white paper or a tinted paper and hot or cold press watercolor paper. A hot press watercolor paper has been rolled very smooth and a cold press watercolor paper has a texture. What type you choose is entirely up to you.
