Adding Gum Arabic to watercolour achieves three effects: It slows down the drying time of the paint, keeping your painting open for slightly longer and allowing more time to work. It increases transparency and adds gloss to your paint. Gum Arabic washes will also provide greater depth and luminosity than stand alone colour washes.


Gum Arabic can be mixed into the paint or added to the jar of water to use throughout the painting process.
