The making of gum is a homely and simple process. The product used is starch, and gum consistency varies with the purpose of the piece.
TYPES OF GUM
Using a cloth, the gum is passed in the product in the reverse side, to then be washed to dry.
The pieces are placed to dry outdoors in the shade, for about 30 minutes in a kind of "barbacue", or in-doors holding the frame in the wall or at the door.
After the piece dries, it is removed from the grid cutting the threads that served to make it stretched in it.
