Acrylic Gesso Instructions:

  • Use at full strength or thin with up to 25% water. When thinning more than 25%, create an equal mix of water and matte medium.
  • Sand slick surfaces first. Apply a thin coat with a flat brush and let dry for 24 hours before painting.
  • To create a smoother base, sand the dried gesso and reapply.
  • Acrylic painters should apply at least two coats.
  • Oil painters should apply 2-4 coats and sand between applications.
  • To create a colored background, gradually add acrylic paint to the gesso until you reach your desired tone. Stir until thoroughly blended. Apply as normal.
