Art Basics Heavy Gesso - white


Finnabair Art Basics Heavy Gesso - White.

This gesso is an opaque, matte and ground acrylic! Works well on canvas, wood, paper, metal, chipboard, fabric, plastic and lots more! It dries quickly and works well for a variety of colour products providing a permanent, smooth, non-yellowing, chalky background. Gesso is water-based, but permanent and flexible after drying. Will mix with pigments, or acrylic paints, to create a range of customized, coloured grounds.

Art Basics Heavy Gesso - White is great for covering or repairing a background for art mediums. Dries permanent with a matte finish. Can be applied with a palette knife, texture tool or brush.

As Gesso is permanent after drying, so we suggest cleaning the tools and stencils with water and soap (or wet wipes) just after using.

White Heavy Gesso has body in it, but it won't cover your background perfectly with just one coat. For good results you should put 2 thinner coats, drying them in-between the steps.
