A clear ground to prepare your surface and add a high level of tooth.
what it does
primes surfaces and adds a high level of tooth for maximum color adhesion and stability
gives a transparent matte finish which allows the original surface to show through and 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 suitable 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 like this will last generations
how to use it
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 (avoiding overbrushing) 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 a transparent/semi-opaque acrylic color for a custom sheer tint - soft body acrylic is the optimum consistency
