Chromacryl Gesso is used to prepare surfaces for painting for Chromacryl paints. Our Gesso’s are made to a high viscosity formulation which can be used to produce texture before starting to paint.
Gesso’s have excellent covering power and provide a smooth, even finish with a very fine ‘tooth’
when a smooth more even surface is required a little water can be added to produce a smooth effect
use 2 coats of Gesso to seal and prepare the surface you want to work on
we recommend using our Gesso’s to seal non-professional pre-primed canvases
Gesso primers are formulated to prevent moisture loss through absorption, which can make acrylic paint dry too quickly, leaving the paint looking flat and dull
Gesso Primers are ideal for the preparation of most surfaces: canvas, cardboard, illustration board, paper, etc
