Dammar gum is a resin secreted by a tree in the Indonesian Islands. It has been used since the 19th century in painting for the manufacture of varnishes and painting mediums. It produces a natural, transparent, satin-to-gloss finish. Used as an adjuvant in oil paint and wax, it is diluted in the essence of turpentine.
