Primers are applied before painting and control the texture, absorbency and the colour of the surface. A good quality primer is essential as the longevity of a painting depends on how the surface has been prep
Black Gesso Primer – This gesso has a matt black finish for maximum colour contrast and can be used straight from the pot. To reduce absorbency and to boost the integrity of the paint film a minimum of three coats is recommended on canvas if used with oils.
White Gesso Primer – Made from high quality acrylic resin with a good level of pigment strength, it can be used straight from the pot and has excellent “tooth” for film adhesion. To reduce absorbency and to boost the integrity of the film a minimum of two coats is required if working with oils.
