Description

S123. Gum Sandarac.

Used on vellum and paper just before writing to achieve fine hairlines. Will help produce crisper letters. May stop bleeding, and help with feathering.

Choose 1/2oz, 1oz, or Bag.

Bag: A small drawstring (cloth) bag/pouch of ground gum sandarac ready for you to use to correct slight bleeding or to get thinner thins. Dab the sandarac onto the paper through the cloth & then hold the paper vertically and tap off any excess. Contains 1-ounce gum sandarac.

1/2oz and 1oz: Tie up in a small square of cotton cloth, and lightly pounce onto your paper to produce finer thins. Now comes in a plastic jar for easier use!

    gum sandarac is magic
