Applications

GRAPHIC INDIA INK

Graphic India ink is a carbon black dispersion. Fluid without dripping, it is diluted with water to achieve wash. Once dry, it resists water and washing.

DRAWING GUM

Drawing gum is a peelable solution used to keep areas of artwork free, for use with ink, watercolour, gouache... It is applied using a brush or pen on the parts of the work to be masked

Colour is applied when the drawing gum is dry. Once the colours are completely dry just rub the gum with your finger or with an eraser to reveal the masked parts.

BREADCRUMB GUM

This workable paste gum is used to erase charcoal, graphite pencil, pastel, sanguine ... It absorbs pigments that are deposited excessively on paper. Just squeeze it to clean it, and to be able to erase again effectively. 

It has the advantage of not leaving flakes on the surface. Thanks to its flexibility, it lets you create pointed shapes to erase very fine parts or a ball or flat shape to clear larger sections of a drawing, and erase more or less according to the pressure exerted on the drawing.

After a while, it becomes completely coloured, and it must be changed to prevent leaving marks on the paper.

VARNISH

Crystal varnish

Very limpid and easy to apply, this fairly thick varnish is very covering. Once dry, it forms a particularly bright film that enhances the colour depth.The subtlety of the film and its discreet sheen make it a valuable varnish to highlight the more subtle forms and the finest nuances in an artwork.
Superfine Gouache Varnish
Superfine Gouache varnish is a non-yellowing acrylic-based product, which lends a thin protective film with a satin finish. It enhances colour vibrancy.

Water-based satin gouache varnish

Water-based satin gouache varnish is applied without going over and over the product, to avoid soaking the gouache coats.

Solvent-based anti-UV varnish 

Solvent-based anti-UV varnish, with a satin appearance and impermeable, filters ultraviolet rays, thereby preventing the degradation of certain colours sensitive to light. It is especially recommended to protect illustrations made with water-based Colorex inks.

PASTEL AND CHARCOAL FIXATIVE

The fixative for pastels, pencils and charcoals is designed for dry techniques. It will be enable drawings to be protected without changing the hue for the sustainable conservation of works.
