More Information

Formulated to enhance the creations of artists working with Liquitex Acrylic Paint, but equally effective when used with any acrylic colour, Liquitex Basics Acrylic Gesso is a reliable base coat primer, suitable for preparing a number of surfaces prior to the application of acrylic and oil paint.

Liquitex offers the broadest range of acrylic mediums to inspire creativity at every stage of the painting process. Surface Prep Mediums are used to seal prime and add tooth (for colour adhesion) to all surfaces such as canvas wood paper and metal. This same preparation is used for both acrylic and oil paint. Professional gessoes usually take just one coat, and adding Liquitex Soft Body colour to any gesso creates customised tints and primers.

Liquitex Basics Acrylic Gesso is a value acrylic gesso used to prepare painting surfaces. One coat is usually all that is required. This Gesso can be applied to any material or surface that will accept traditional acrylic media, such as canvas, paper, wood, etc. Liquitex Surface Prep Mediums are lightweight, non-toxic, and dry to a water-resistant, non-yellowing surface.

APPLICATION: Undiluted or thin up to 25% with water. When thinning more than 25%, use an equal mixture of water and Liquitex Matte Medium to thin gesso.
