The Liquitex Professional White Gesso primes surfaces and adds a high level of tooth for maximum color adhesion and stability;
Gives a matte white, opaque finish which provides a professional standard, archival base to help maintain the longevity of your work.
Stiffens your canvases and creates the optimum absorbency for paint application.
Establishes a good surface for preliminary charcoal or pencil drawings.
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 will last generations.
Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products.
Use undiluted or thin with up to 25% water - when thinning more than 25%, use an equal mixture of water and Liquitex Matte Medium.
Sand hard or shiny surfaces first, apply a thin coat to support with a wide, flat brush and leave to dry for at least 24 hours before starting to paint.
To create a smoother base, sand the surface and reapply gesso.
If using as a base for oils, apply 2-4 coats and sand between applications.
Add acrylic color for a custom tint.
Soft Body Acrylic is the optimum consistency.
Two coats are recommended under oil colour.
