Gum Arabic 20ml - Hamburg

Introducing Hamburg's 20ml Bottle of Gum Arabic Solution – the perfect companion for every calligraphy enthusiast! Extracted from the sap of the esteemed acacia tree (Senegal), this solution promises to enhance the quality and resilience of your ink.

Whether you’re grappling with thin fountain pen inks that bleed easily or wanting to add depth to your copperplate calligraphy without the thick strokes splitting, a few drops of our gum arabic solution will do the trick. Not just that, it acts as a stellar bonding agent for gouache or powder pigments, ensuring your artwork remains unaffected even after the water evaporates.

Be wary though, as excess can leave shiny patches. So, it's advised to add sparingly and test before settling on the desired amount. Dive into a world where your calligraphy stands out with sharp, neat, and long-lasting strokes. Your inks deserve Hamburg's touch.

How to Use:

  • Viscosity Improvement: To prevent ink bleed, especially with thin fountain pen inks, add a few drops of the gum arabic solution to thicken it. This can be particularly helpful for copperplate calligraphy to avoid the common problem of thick strokes splitting.
  • Bonding Agent: When using gouache or powdered pigments, mix in some gum arabic. This ensures the ink remains intact after the water's evaporation, preventing it from wiping away.
  • Test Before Finalizing: Always remember, while a little enhances, too much can be detrimental. Adding excessive gum arabic may leave shiny patches on your artwork. Thus, after adding a few drops, always perform a writing test. Adjust the quantity based on the result to ensure the ideal consistency and look.
  • Storage: Always keep the bottle tightly sealed when not in use to maintain its quality.

Enhance your calligraphy journey with Hamburg's Gum Arabic solution – because every stroke matters!
