Q&A (2)
Q Dear all, Can this gesso be used on wood frames? Sanded to a smooth finish? Then painted with acrylic? Thanks Gio
A

The Galeria Gesso Primwer is acrylic based so could defintiely be used as a base for acrylics and would be suitable for painting onto wood. 

Q Can I use this as a primer for oil painting?
A

If you use several layers you can certainly use this for oil painting.

19th January 2015 Reviewed by Olga Gillies Great basic gesso. I tend to use it for initial priming on raw canvas, layering it until I get the surface I like. It has less 'grit'/'grip' than professional quality gesso. Sometimes that's good for a specific effect & medium. For heavy body/professional acrylics and oils I add a final coat of professional quality gesso though.
