This medium is used for producing personalised watercolours in small batches, which are suitable for storing as pans or using as moist watercolour. It can also be used as a paint medium to increases the transparency and brilliance of the watercolour, but unlike the Gum Arabic solution, it will maintain the watercolour’s flexibility and solubility.

This medium contains Gum Arabic and all the other ingredients necessary, in the right proportions, for a high-quality watercolour. To make a small batch, just add dry pigment to the binder and mix with a pallet knife using a simple mixing ratio of 1:2. The pigment particles will be relatively coarse and give a very granular wash, alternatively initially wet the dry pigment with a little water and grind using a hand muller on a roughened glass plate. This will give a smoother watercolour, although the smoothness will be dependent on how easy the pigment is to grind.

This medium can also be used as a painting medium when mixed with moist watercolour. It can be used to extend the watercolour, increase its solubility (if necessary) and increase its transparency and brilliance. Because it contains all the ingredients necessary and in the right proportions for a high-quality watercolour, it maintains the properties of the original watercolour.
