  • Stiffens your canvases and creates the optimum absorbency for paint application

  • Always use a quality artist's gesso if you want a lasting, archival base. With proper application and under the right conditions, a professional gesso like this will last generations

  • To create a smoother base, sand the surface and reapply gesso
  • If using as a base for oils, apply 2-4 coats and sand between applications
