Gum Arabic has many uses. This medium can be added to inks and gouache as a binder, making them more easy to use for calligraphy. It increases gloss, color brilliance, and transparency when added to watercolor. Gum Arabic also slows down drying time, make it easy to control the spread of wet color when using wet-on-wet techniques.
This unique paste-like formula can be used liberally for an impasto effect, or use sparingly to increase gloss and transparency. 15mL tube.
