Liquitex Professional Gesso is a classic primer for canvases, but also for other surfaces. Gesso improves the application of paint, ensures the ideal absorbency and resistance of the paint, as the substrate does not yellow.
“Gesso” is the Italian word for chalk. The primer was composed of hare skin glue, calcium carbonate (sludge crayon) and white pigment. This recipe was first written by Cennino Cennini and is already about 600 years old!
Of course we have the modern version based on acrylic for you!
- Ideal absorbency for painting grounds
