Comments about Holbein Gum Arabic Medium:
This liquid gum arabic based medium can be used in any non-gel based watercolour, alkyd or even if you are looking for a way to get a pure natural ground mineral or gemstone onto a paper, canvas, cotton, linen,papyrus- whew! you name it substrate and it will last a lifetime with a glossy-ish profile ( it adds gloss to prepared/storebought paints and inks) and a bit of weight so if you are splattering or doing "quick pointillism" you can do a test sheet and note the rate of "drip" for different brands, bases, and colours ( yes, different colours have different weights when the paint or ink is made of pure natural pigments) It i a good medium , etching to, jewelry piercing ground, stop for applying patinas and ready-made "plating" solutions and dips, and there are myriad other uses too many to name in this comment. Offered by a good manufacturer and sold at a reasonable price,even when not on sale, by Blick, you should have some in every studio for any art or craft as it has applications in all of them- from basketry to xerography! jewelry making to sculpture, any colour. printing or photographic manipulation project you can think of can be enhanced with this stuff! If you need texture, or extra texture, get their paste formulation!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
