The ultimate primer for preparing surfaces for acrylic and oil painting such as canvas, cardboard, illustration board, paper etc. On unprepared surfaces paint dries too fast, looses moisture or oil and looks dull. Gesso seals surfaces thoroughly and allows the full vividness of the paint.
Has excellent covering power and gives a smooth, even finish with very fine "tooth". Water based and quick drying.
Apply 1-2 coats as desired. The first coat may be diluted slightly with water for better penetration into absorbent surfaces. No sanding is required between each coat.
Wash brushes and utensils with cold, soapy water immediately after use.
