I wrote that and you can order it from Sax or get it at the local art store.
It is used with watercolors and is in a small jar. With a cottonball apply
the gum arabic to the taped down vellum and seal the paper. When it is dry
you can apply the createx paint when that dries print with a moistened paper
and a press with moderate pressure. The paper should be lifted with a piece
of matt board to give it a good contact with the paper in the press.
