Product Overview

Liquitex Professional Super Heavy Gesso is an innovative, impasto titanium white gesso having the ability to hold sculptural shape. Provides all the attributes of traditional acrylic gesso.

  • 946ml.
  • Excellent base coat primer for preparing painting surfaces for acrylic and oil paint.
  • Mix with acrylic colours to have a tinted ground. Tint colour with Liquitex Professional Soft or Heavy Body Artist Colours.
  • Flexible, non-cracking and non-yellowing when dry.
  • Provides the perfect "tooth" and adhesion to a wide variety of surfaces, including canvas, paper, wood, or any clean, porous, non-oily surface.
  • One coat is usually all that is required.
  • Apply using knife or brush for thick and sculptural application.
  • Gives a textured matte white, opaque finish which provides a professional standard, archival base to help maintain the longevity of your work
  • Adds 3D texture and acts as an ideal base for thick sculptural shape and weight
  • Primes surfaces and adds maximum tooth for maximum color adhesion and stability
  • Stiffens canvases and creates the optimum absorbency for paint application
  • Always use a quality artist's gesso if you want a lasting, archival base - a low-cost ground will flake and separate from your support, taking your work with it.
  • With proper application and under the right conditions, a professional gesso like this will last generations


  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products.
  • Can be thinned with Liquitex Gesso Sand hard or shiny surfaces first, apply to support with a knife/brush and leave to dry for at least 24 hours before starting to paint. 
  • Add acrylic color for a custom tint - Liquitex Soft Body Acrylic is the optimum consistency.
