Item details

Gum Arabic .5 oz jar

by USArtQuest

Gum Arabic is a water soluble, colorless, odorless powder, and is used as a binder for watercolor painting because it dissolves easily in water.
Pigment of any color is suspended within the gum arabic in varying amounts, resulting in watercolor paint.
Water acts as a vehicle or a diluent to thin the watercolor paint and helps to transfer the paint to a surface, such as paper.
When all moisture evaporates, the gum arabic binds the pigment to the paper surface.
The resulting effect is a fine glossy and archival watercolor paint,
that needs no further sprays or finishes.
For use as a binder with water (distilled preferred) and tube, pan or powdered pigments.
