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

I30. Ziller Pen Cleaner
I30. Ziller Pen Cleaner

The makers of Ziller Ink now offer a pen cleaner that is formulated for pigmented acrylic inks (like their popular colored and black inks) as well as other calligraphy inks. To remove dried ink, soak the nibs that need to be cleaned for 30 minutes, then rinse with warm water. Repeat if necessary, and dry nibs thoroughly after cleaning. Ziller Pen Cleaner can also be used to clean fountain pens and technical pens by removing the nib before soaking and filling the reservoir with the cleaner. Occasionally filling the pens with Ziller Pen Cleaner and discharging several times will keep them writing smoothly.
