What an exciting post - for may years have been experimenting with prints on various papers using various methods and recipes (ad nauseum ... eventually stopped. BUT printing onto clay opens up a whole new world!!!
Yes I have seen Kristina bogdanov's presentation. that was so great. I have come across her website and few days later had a pleasure to watch her on ceramics daily.what a luck. now i'm struggling to get gum arabic, which is so funny. we used to use it at school as glue, because it is nontoxic (and we even ate it, don't ask me why, kids are weird), so it was easy to get. but that was in poland. now i'm in south africa and manage to find a supplier but would have to buy minimum a tone of this stuff!.. will just keep serching. does anyone know what do you mix arabic gum powder to achive liquid consystency?
Hi there - I live in Windhoek, Namibia and am offering you a cup full of the stuff. You will have to mix it up with luke warm water. First soak the amount needed and then stirr it in - all done with warm water. I add some thymol ( a drop of Dettol would do too) to keep it from rotting as I like to mix large qtys and store it. Send me your address and I can send you some - no problem. Also have an address of a supplier in SA who can sell you smaller amounts.
The gum in solution is measured in "degree baume" if I am not wrong. I use it in scree and other printing.
