Decospray Black Gesso is a universal water-based spray primer for preparing surfaces to be painted on.
What is Gesso?
Traditionally comprising of a binder, pigment and chalk or gypsum, Gesso is a base layer applied to canvas or other substrates, prior to painting. With an increased flexibility and archival life, modern gesso is a combination of chalk and pigment in an acrylic polymer medium.
Why use Gesso?
Providing better adhesion by adding tooth to the surface, priming with gesso also prevents paint soaking into the support, and adds a strengthening foundation, allowing application of heavier media.
