Watercolour > Winsor & Newton Watercolour Mediums > Gum Arabic 75ml

Gum Arabic 75ml

Winsor and Newton Gum Arabic is a pale coloured solution that increases the gloss and transparency of water colour. Gum arabic should not be used straight from the bottle as thick films can be brittle. Thin with water. Can be added to your jar of dipping water.

Adding Gum Arabic to a water colour wash will have the following effects:

  • it will slow the drying time of your paint, giving you slightly longer to work on creating your image or working wet into wet 
  •  it increases transparency and gloss to give greater brilliance of colour, giving you luminous colours
  • it reduces the staining of pigments, making washes easier to lift
