Description

Liquitex Clear Acrylic Gesso seals, primes and adds tooth while leaving the surface visible, and can be used not only for acrylic colours but also oils, oil pastels, graphite and charcoal.

Usual choices include canvas, wood, paper and metal, but it’s also an excellent primer for mural work and just about any non-oily surface will take it.

With just a single coat it dries to a clear and flexible matt finish, but you can apply further coats to reduce the visibility of your working surface, or mix with a dab of translucent acrylic colour to tint.

Q&A (1)
Q Can this be used to prime over surfaces already painted in oil? If not is there another product that can?
A

This product works well on non-oily surfaces, so it's unlikely to work effectively if layered over an oil painting. It would probably be best to use an oil based primer over oil paint.

11th June 2019 Reviewed by Olga Teresa Pawlak Adds a lovely tooth for the paint to stick. The gesso is a nice, liquid consistency but quite a bit has to be used to cover a whole page/canvas; it does dry clear though and does a great job protecting the surface from paints such as oils.
