Re: [BKARTS] gum ammoniac



It is used as a base for gilding and has a matte finish, as opposed to a harder gesso base which results in a brilliantly burnished finish. There is a very useful book called Secreta by Joyce Grafe which explains how to make these bases.

Does anyone know where I can buy gum ammoniac in bulk? I have been buying it online at $3.50 per ounce.

Thank you,
