Rated 5 out of 5 by from Golden is golden! I use this as one of the steps in making a base for applying gold leaf. There is very little I have to do other than tint it and thin it out. It is extremely reliable, cost effective, and durable. Golden has done their homework.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loyal customer of Golden products I have experimented with other brands but always prefer Golden acrylics and gesso. The gesso is rich, opaque, and creates an excellent surface on which to paint. I highly recommend Golden products.nnn

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pastel Surface - Make Any Surface a Pastel Surface I was a little unsure of ordering this, but I sure am glad I did! You can make virtually any surface a pastel surface. It has a nice tooth to it. If you want it grittier, you can add pumice. I haven't tried this yet, as I'm happy with the surface as is. It takes layers well. And you can use the clear over an existing watercolor background or sketch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent ground for paintings I bought the sandable gesso a month ago and mixed it with a little acrylic color before applying for a ground color. The result was a soft yellow tint. I applied 3 layers to masonite board, sanding between each one. The final result was a silky smooth finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Golden absorbent ground I bought this and am in LOVE with it. I am absolutely happy I bought it as I love the water color effects I can get out of my acrylic paints when using this ground.It goes on nicely onto the canvas. I will absolutely be buying this again as I have had a huge jump on demands on my artwork that I have used it on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I have used BASIC gesso and this product is as good and somewhat better than other gesso products. The Black Gesso is exceptionally good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Golden Acrylic Ground for Pastels I was introduced to this at a colored pencil workshop and I really love it. A coat or two of this product and you have the equivalent of sanded paper to work on. It's so transparent when it dries that you can paint it over any color base without obscuring it, and it even allows you to use colored pencil over usually too slick acrylic. Wonderful stuff!

  • LPP Lowest Price - This item is already at the Best Lowest Price Possible and no further discounts or coupons can be applied.
  • GOLDEN Absorbent Ground designed for stain and watercolor-type applications is light stable permanent and flexible. While it has a gesso-like consistency it is not intended as a gesso alternative. It must be applied over a porous and toothy surface such as GOLDEN Gesso to ensure adequate adhesion due to the type and level of solids in the product. Once properly sealed it is a permanent acrylic film that does not need to be kept under glass however the surface is quite delicate and additional protection is recommended. A properly applied isolation coat and GOLDEN Varnishes (Polymer & MSA) will protect the artwork from environmental factors such as sunlight and dust.



    Apply onto gessoed canvas hardboard wood or other surface. Prime surfaces with 2 coats of GOLDEN Gesso applied directly to the support. DO NOT apply any initial sizing of GAC 100 GAC 400 or other acrylic mediums. Doing so may result in cracking of the subsequent layers of Absorbent Ground.
