    I can't help you with the paints and papers. Any paper that is dimensionally stable after soaking in water several times would be suitable for gum.

    The lamp - I don't know! Does it have a curve that shows the spectrum of light it produces? I've never used a UV light source, but it seems to me to be an integral and important part of the process.

    Why not start with bromoil, which is based on regular standard black & white silver prints on certain papers (according to Gene), and requires MINIMAL investment?!
    Then save up for a proper UV lamp. At least you'll be busy in the meantime

    Black Light Bulb:

    It's 24 US Dollars. Since you run 220V in Poland, I'm sure you can get a step-down transformer with a 120V secondary pretty inexpensively.

    My old brain can't keep up here. We started with Bromoil, shifted gears to Gumoil - and then moved to Gum? Three totally differing processes! :>)

    Cheers,
