Jack Frost on the mirror by Baileyley Jack Frost on the mirror by Baileyley
JACK EVERYWHERE. And the mirror in my room - not an exception. I drew it with gouache in the top corner. Now I see him each time when I smarten up in front of the mirror :squee:

It's no problem :)
It depends on how skilled you are. It's different for every person. You might be able to paint on mirrors. To be honest i'm not familiar with this type of paint, but if you were to paint on a mirror it might chip off. However if you want to paint on a mirror i would use acrylic paint :) It sticks, and shouldn't come off.
If you are using acrylic, don't get ANY on your clothes or surrounding objects that you do not want paint to get on. It's permanent.

It's no problem.Glad i can help :)
There is nothing really special about gouache in general. It's just another paint. It's similar to watercolours, but it is opaque (can't see through it, just like acrylic)
One big differnece between gouache and acrylic is that gouache dries lighter, while acrylic dries darker. This is one reason i hate acrylics. They can look so darn dull.
That should be a big factor when you are choosing between the two.
Here is some info on gouache paint [link]
I would go for acrylic, since they tend to be a bit cheaper.

aaah, i see.. i'm not really comfortable using acrylics because, like you said.. when it dried it became a lot more darker.. and it takes a while dry too.. and when it got on my clothes :I

oh, are gouache also permanent when it got on clothes and stuff?

Actually, acrylic is the fastest drying paint. It dries in minutes. Though this depends on how think you apply it.
Unfortunately i don't know if gouache is permanent. Like i said im not familiar with it. You should look it up :)
