POSTER COLOURS – PAINTING

Unlike “watercolour” and “gouache,” “poster colour” does not refer to a specific kind of paint. Instead, it is a general term for opaque water-soluble paints meant for scanning and reproduction rather than display. Poster colours are usually less expensive than paints intended for display, and not very lightfast. Their opacity comes from additives and coarsely-ground pigments. They also lift very easily. It’s a good idea to test any new paint so you know how it will behave before you use it in your art, but we especially recommend testing poster colours because they can be made with a wide variety of different binders.

Poster colours are highly opaque. Like gouache, they work well on both white and toned paper. You can easily add light colours over dark hues, so they are wonderfully straightforward to paint with. They are also very vibrant. Some colours are made with multiple pigments and can form muddy hues when mixed, so it’s best to start with large blocks of thin colour and add details on top with thicker paint. This prevents the previous layers from reactivating and mixing with the new paint. Stick to just a few layers to reduce the chance of the layers blending, as demonstrated in our Nicker Poster Colours video.

Nicker Poster Colours are known for their use by Studio Ghibli and other Japanese animation studios, who use them to paint backgrounds. They’re different from typical poster colours in that they are made with gum arabic, like most gouache and watercolour. Nicker also lists the paints’ lightfastness, opacity, pigment codes, and tendency to bleed into colours layered over them, so you can select only the colours with the properties you need.
