I haven't used it with ET but have with gouache in the past. It's interesting. Let's you make thin washes that have reduced flow. Be warned that it appears to slightly darken over time. My tube of it has darker amberish gunk at the top of the tube.

hi david,
The ingredients are said to be gum arabic and silica. So I guess it's only as good as the quality of the gum arabic.
I mixed some of it with an egg/oil/sake emulsion and gouache last night.... we'll see how impasto and how thick it can get before cracking or what have you.
