Gum Arabic

Gum Arabic is used as a binder medium for a variety of applications. Use with water and Pearl Ex Powdered Pigments (or other dry pigments) to make your own transparent watercolors, washes, stamping and calligraphy inks. For use on paper, wood or any surface that will not be washed. Gum Arabic produces a glossy, easy to brush or stamp on paint that easily mixes and cleans up with water


Add dry gum to pigment in a ratio of 1 part gum to 4 parts pigment (ratio of gum to pigment may be adjusted for different effects). Slowly add water and mix until the desired consistency is achieved. Solutions of gum and water may also be prepared and stored in a cool place for later use.

works brilliantly

By: on 27 December 2020
I have used Jacquard problems many years. Gum Arabic is the safest medium to blend your own paints. The colour stays bright and the paint remains workable longer than I have sat using my mixture. Also it is extremely good when used in a water tray with inks to make ink blots. No need for anything else. I love this product and I hope you will too.
