Michael Harding Non-Absorbent Acrylic Primer

Product Code: P030167

From £13.95

Michael Harding's Acrylic Primer is a flexible and permanent white ground for use with oil or acrylic paints.

  • It has been specially formulated to provide a non-absorbent surface which will not leech oil from oil paints like a conventional acrylic primer.
  • This stops paints looking dull, flat and muted, helping them to retain the lustre they had when first squeezed from the tube.
  • The primers consists of pigment dispersed within an acrylic resin.
  • It is best used in 2 coats, the first of which may be 25% diluted with water (no more than 1 part water to 3 parts primer) to increase flow and coverage.
  • This coat will be touch dry within a couple of hours; the second coat can then be applied.
  • Suitable for use on linen, wood, MDF and other supports.
  • Creates an effective ground for both acrylic and oil paint.
  • Do not apply over Rabbit Skin Glue or to a flimsy, unstable support.
  • Select from 10 different colours in two sizes - 500ml and 1 Litre.
  • Select a colour below to add to your basket.

13th May 2021 Reviewed by Elizabeth Foster Non-absorbent, so much better for oil painting. More expensive than other primers, but good quality. Very thick and a bright white. Can be watered down a bit if needed. I use a cheaper gesso for 1st layer on raw canvas, then add 2 layers of this.
