Kinder Binder | Gum Arabic for handmade watercolour!

75ml bottle

Kinder Binder is made of Gum Arabic, which is made from the sap harmlessly harvested from living trees. It is used as the 'binder' medium that is added to pigments to make watercolours because it is watersoluble, and sets again as it dries. It is a wonderfully versatile liquid!

I primarily use Kinder Binder to hand-make make my own gorgeous watercolours with our Fairy Dust pigments, but you can use it in so many other ways!

Kinder Binder:

  • controls the spread of wet watercolour,
  • reduces staining
  •  slows drying to allow more time for blending.
  • also increases the gloss and transparency of your water colour paint.
  • will slightly extend the drying time of the watercolour paint,
  • makes the colors seem more vibrant!
  • It will increase the gloss of the dried painting.
  • Also increases the brilliance and transparency of gouache.
