Print Paste Thickener




Note:  Organic printing gum is low in stock and we will receive our shipment of the product the end of the first week in April.  Thank you for your patience!

Organic Printing Gum (replaces Gum Tragacanth) is used as a thickener to paint or print with natural dyes on fabric. It is an organically certified water-soluble carbohydrate gum mixture that performs very well in thickening dyes and pigments for printing and painting. It will dissolve readily in cold or hot water and forms a smooth translucent paste to mix with powders or liquids. Gum Tragacanth is currently in limited availability as most of the world’s supply comes from Iran, which is now a restricted trading partner to the US.

  • 250 grams of Organic Printing Gum will make approximately 8 liters (two gallons) of thickened paste for painting or printing with natural dyes.
