Description

A classic titanium white acrylic 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 matte white, opaque finish which 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 good 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 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 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 acrylic color for a custom tint - Soft Body Acrylic is the optimum consistency
