Golden Black Gesso is a flexible liquid ground that seals, protects, and gives "tooth" to substrates, which promotes paint adhesion. It is formulated to accept a wide variety of media on many commonly used painting surfaces. It comes ready-to-use, but can be mixed with water for thinner applications.

It is flexible and can be applied in thin layers to conform to a variety of textured surfaces without cracking. For oil painting over acrylic gesso, it is recommended that at least three layers of gesso be applied. Golden Black Gesso can be mixed with Golden Acrylics to produce a range of coloured grounds.

Modify Golden Black Gesso by mixing it with a variety of mediums. Spray it, or apply it with brush, roller, or trowel. At least three layers of gesso are needed for oil painting over acrylic gesso.
