  • Love it

    I love this. Makes the watercolours shine. I tried it after reading about Samuel Palmer's use of it in his amazing watercolour paintings. June Walker (West Midlands) on 28 May 2008

  • Excellent gum, horrible cork

    The gum arabic has a really pleasant smell and is the perfect accessory for rendering streams, ponds and lakes. However, it is horribly difficult and frustrating opening this type of bottle. After a few uses, it requires a lot of straight down pressure to get the small hinge in place for it to open. W&N, please, please change the design... Trond Birkeland (MANDAL, Norway) on 10 Aug 2016

  • Fascinating results. - Gum Arabic (75ml)

    I mixed this with different watercolour paints, and got some interesting results. In particular mixed with ultramarine and burnt umber, it produced a great metalic look for an old Yorkshire range that was in a painting I was creating of my great grandparent's living room!
