Seals and stabilizes your surface prior to painting, also adds tooth for good adhesion!
Because a high quality painting begins with a high quality base, start your painting right with Artists' Acrylic Clear or White Gesso! Both offer excellent tooth for great paint adhesion, are fast drying and have a balanced absorbency. The White Gesso has a very high level of pigmentation for maximum opacity and covering power, meaning that 1 to 2 coats on unprimed canvas is all you need. The Clear Gesso is exactly that: clear, not milky like some other "clear" gessoes. It can be tinted with acrylics to add some color to your primer, or used alone to allow the qualities of your canvas or board to show through. It also makes a great ground for pastels or charcoal. Both non-yellowing, flexible gessoes are perfect primers for all your acrylic, oil and alkyd paintings!
- Clear Gesso - With all the tooth, absorbency, and fast-drying properties you need in a gesso, only completely clear! Not milky like some other "clear" gessoes, the unpigmented Artists' Acrylic resin base dries absolutely transparent; allowing you to either tint it with acrylics for a colored primer, or to use it alone and permit the qualities of your canvas or painting surface to show through. Perfect for acrylics, oils and alkyds, it also makes an excellent ground for charcoals or pastels.
- White Gesso - With superior quality Artists' Acrylic resin base and a high level of pigmentation, this non-yellowing gesso gives the maximum of coverage in as little as one coat! (Though 2 coats are recommended for oil paintings) Fast-drying, flexible, and with a balanced absorbency, this gesso provides the perfect level of tooth to ensure good adhesion of your paint. Use it straight from the pot (dilution is not recommended) to provide a sealed and stabilized surface for all your acrylic, oil and alkyd paintings!
