Makes a strong, bright, non-absorbent foundation for oil paintings

Gamblin Oil Painting Ground makes a strong, bright, non-absorbent foundation for oil paintings. Gamblin Ground is formulated from alkyd resin, titanium dioxide, and calcium carbonate – titanium dioxide gives opacity, while calcium carbonate gives tooth for strong adhesion. Gamblin Ground makes a brighter and less-absorbent ground layer compared to acrylic “gesso” – meaning that oil paint layers on top will better retain their color saturation. In addition, the lower absorbency allows for “reductive” underpainting techniques when painters need to wipe back to the white of the Ground.

Key Features:
  • See video - Ground Application
  • Makes a strong, bright, non-absorbent foundation for oil paintings
  • Formulated from alkyd resin, titanium dioxide, and calcium carbonate
  • Brighter and less-absorbent ground layer
  • Oil paint layers on top will better retain their color saturation
  • Lower absorbency
  • Thicker than acrylic gesso
  • Can be applied on top of acrylic gesso

Key Features:

  • Oil paint layers on top will better retain their color saturation
  • Lower absorbency
  • Thicker than acrylic gesso
  • Can be applied on top of acrylic gesso

Because the percentage of pigments is so much higher than in acrylic “gesso”, painters need only apply TWO coats of Gamblin Ground instead of the recommended four coats of acrylic. Fabric supports should be sized with PVA Size before applying Gamblin Ground. Also, Gamblin Ground can be applied on top of acrylic gesso for a brighter white, less-absorbent ground layer. Gamblin Ground is thicker than acrylic gesso, and requires different application techniques

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use this oil base to smooth out the machine texture on panels before painting This product makes a great base for my detailed, realistic paintings. It can be very slow to dry and I have learned to apply very thin layers and sand between layers

If you are going to be painting on oil primed linen, I don’t need to do a layer of this, do I?  The linen has already been significantly primed, right? Just want to be sure.?

Asked by: Heidibelle
If you are painting on a primed surface you do not need to add more primer. Some artists feel safer adding an extra layer of primer, but it is really not necessary. Primer is a necessity if the surface is not primed. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

I am looking for an "oil based ground" to paint oil paintings on. Previously I used gesso, and I want an- oil-based primer. Is the Gamblin Oil Painting Ground made with "oil" and not acrylic gesso? How do I apply it to a smoothly finished panel?

Asked by: Roena
Yes, it is Oil Ground. you should be able to search youtube, or vimeo, for How to Apply Gamblin Oil Painting Ground. it is NOT acrylic. Not sure if Jerry's has a link to video demo. Excellent product.
