The company I order my art paper from has gum arabic in 2 varieties: Gum Arabic (Kordofan) No. 1 and Gum Arabic (Nigerian) No. 3. Any idea what the difference is? Would either be fine for gum bichromate?

The woman I talked to told me these were for mixing with pigments, and the Kordofan was favored for watercolor pigments. Thanks!

Best Regards,
