Clean up[edit]

In the clean up, I removed the gum arabic mention. My ref didn't have it, but some other (on line) ones do. I'll put it back in when I find a dead-tree ref. I also removed the "illustrated manuscripts (country of origin unknown)" as I couldn't find a ref to support it, and think it may have meant illuminated manuscripts anyway. brenneman(t)(c) 06:52, 17 January 2006 (UTC)

Missing van Gogh[edit]

What was wrong with the van Gogh? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:07, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

I didnt remove it, but considering this is article is about the medium.. I think it's better to have pictures that actually displays good technique, van goghs just famous because of the story behind it - not the use of gouache. Mlaoxve (talk) 04:33, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

I thought it was a good painting. But yeah, the article's about the medium. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:13, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Examples of gouaches diluted with rainfall, Coca-Cola, etc.[edit]

From the intro:

There are examples of gouaches diluted with rainfall, as well as very unusual examples with things other than water, such as Coca-Cola and Diet Coke.

The question I am asking, are their notable examples of it being diluted by these materials? The examples listed are just random works. If there are no notable examples, it hardly deserves to be mentioned in the article71.190.182.22 (talk) 18:19, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

I'm in agreement, these mentions are not relevant enough to the article to warrant inclusion Billfruge (talk) 15:43, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Proposed restructure[edit]

See Featured articles Shoe polish

I'd like to move the bits around a little bit and propose the following structure. - Aaron Brenneman (talk) 10:10, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

   1 Usage
   2 History
       2.1 Earliest use, 14th to 16th century
       2.2 Height, 18th and 19th century
       2.3 Modern day
   3 Composition and Manufacture
   4 Prominent use
       4.1 Artist 
       4.2 Works
   5 See also
   6 References
   7 External links
I did a little restructure, mostly lead, and put "description" first to match encyclopedic style. Intro is from (several) dictionaries and can always be ref'ed if needed. Fountains of Bryn Mawr (talk) 16:53, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
