Use Liquitex Gesso to seal, prime and add tooth (for color adhesion) to all surfaces such as canvas, wood, paper and metal. This gesso is non-yellowing, flexible and non-cracking. On most supports it will take just one, undiluted coat to effectively prime and prepare for either acrylic or oil paint. Adding Liquitex Soft Body color to any gesso will create striking customized tints.
Liquitex offers White, Clear and Colored Gessos. All have excellent adhesion and are fluid, matte and opaque, except the transparent clear, for easy coverage. Clear Gesso keeps the working surface visible and dries completely clear to translucent depending on thickness. It has an ideal high tooth for pastel, oil pastel, graphite, and charcoal.
Liquitex Black and Neutral Gray Colored Gessos are quick and effective pre-mixed alternatives to tinting clear gesso with paint. Priming a surface in black or neutral gray eliminates the starkness of white and provides a strong contrast.
