  • Shake well before use.
  • Gum arabic concentrated is ready to use, but can be diluted with water if necessary.
  • The mixing ratio of binder to pigment very much depends on the type of dyestuff. Our recommendation: Start off with the same amount of binder and pigment, than add binder or pigment until the required consistency. The dried streaks of paint should have a smooth surface and do not come off when rubbed with the dry heel of the hand. The self-mixed colours can be diluted with water if necessary. They are intended to be used as quickly as possible and should only be stored for a few days in screw-top jars.
  • The product should only be added to water-colours or gouache colours on a separate palette!
  • The product is water-mixable and remains water-soluble after getting dry.
  • Please clean working tools as soon as possible with water or water and soap.
  • Close immediately after use.
  • Store in a cool and dry place.
  • Protect from frost.
  • Individual pre-tests are required.
