Gesso is very similar to white acrylic paint, only thinner. It dries hard making the surfaces more stiff. Gesso prepares (or primes) surfaces for painting, making the surfaces slightly textured and ready to accept paint.
Stir or shake the bottle well. Apply with a wide brush or scraper to surface. Sand between coats to create an even painting surface. May be thinner with water. Can be tinted with acrylic colours. Do not use solvents. Do not use oil colours to tint.
Prepares canvases, wood, board, plaster, concrete etc. For painting with oil or acrylic paints.
