I135. Ox Gall
I135. Winsor Newton Ox Gall, 75ml (2 ounces)

Add this medium to your watercolor or gouache for better flow. The recommended method is to use 2 drops Ox Gall into each ounce water. Mixed into the water that you will use to thin gouache allows a small amount of Ox Gall to be added whenever you add water to the paint.



Your Price

I84. W&N Gum Arabic: 2.5oz
Winsor & Newton Gum Arabic.

Add this binder in gouache to make it more durable and easier to erase pencil guidelines. Add several drops to a bottle of Higgins Eternal for copperplate writing. 2.5oz (75ml) glass bottle.

I have worked with metallic gouaches for many years. I always add a little more gum Arabic if there are going to be lines to erase, then allow the writing to cure for several hours before erasing. A white vinyl eraser is the gentlest choice for erasing guideline. I avoid guidelines if possible via a light box. -- Don King
