Gum Arabic is made from the sap of the Acacia tree. Acacia Senegal which is also known as the Gum Arabic Tree produces the highest quality grade of Gum Arabic.

The gum in the paint also acts as a glaze which increases luminosity, prevents colours from lightening and stops the paint from bleeding beyond the brush stroke. It also increases working time by slowing water evaporation.

Available in 100g and 500g Tubs
