I have recently acquired a stock of old glass painting materials from a gentleman, (sadly deceased)amongst which is a box of powdered acacia. Does anyone know what this might have been used for? Any suggestions gratefully recieved!

Thanks,

Helen Robinson

I think that acacia can be used as fixative like gum arabic. Would be interested to hear how it works.

What you have there is Gum Arabic also known as Indian Gum; Gum acacia; Acacia powder. Hope that helps.
Cheers Stuart.

Thanks for both those answers - shame it's not something more excitung but at least I can use it without fear of arrest. You can't be too careful sniffing a nameless white powder!!!
