In the sample below you can see how I used some of the Royal & Langnickel gouache straight from the tube and mixed with just a bit of water on my palette and then painted on black paper. I only used one coat, but just that single layer was nice and opaque with rich, vibrant colors. After the paint dried, I simply outlined and added details with a Uniball Signo white gel pen.
