Can this gesso be painted over old oil paintings so I can paint acrylics?

Asked by: Devie
No, you cannot do that. This is an acrylic gesso and you should never paint acrylic on top of oil paint. The oil paint will gas out and compromise the integrity of the acrylic paint on top. You can paint a new oil painting on top of the oil painting, but you cannot apply acrylic paint to the canvas. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

Perhaps I received a bad batch, but I find this product terrible. When I brush it on the canvas, it leaves all kinds of little chunks that I then have to spend all kinds of time trying to pick out before it dries. Has anyone else run into this issue?

Asked by: EM2018
It does sound like you have received a defective batch of gesso. We regret to hear that your order arrived defective. Please call our customer service center at 800-827-8478 or email us at [email protected] within 30 days so that one of our representatives can assist you with an exchange, refund, or credit transaction to your satisfaction.

Is this product translucent enough that I can paint it over my line drawing before I start painting?

Asked by: Lori B in NC
A thin coat of gesso should not fully obscure your line drawing. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

What do you use to SAND the gesso'd canvas surface?

Asked by: Dinkie
Sandpaper can be used to sand down a dry gessoed canvas.
