Gum Arabic 50g


A tree resin that is soluble in water, this is ideal for making a base or binder for natural paints. It remains soluble in water after drying, so any painted surface can be washed clean, or can be coated with wax or varnish to make the paint waterproof. 

To use, put the resin granules in a bowl and pour on boiling water. Stir occasionally and allow to cool. If you want a less brittle paint you can add a small amount of honey.
