Gesso can be thought of as the bridge between your support (canvas, board or whatever you paint on) and the paint. GOLDEN Gesso is designed to penetrate supports and provide a surface to which paint can adhere. Proper preparation with GOLDEN Gesso increases the life span of artwork. Golden Gesso is formulated to be flexible and is highly pigmented for greater opacity.
Golden acrylic gessos are ready-to-use liquid grounds formulated for the use of acrylics on any commonly used painting surface. They are flexible and can be applied in thin layers to conform to a 1 to textured surfaces without cracking. For oil painting over acrylic gesso, it is recommended that at least three layers of gesso be applied. Golden Gesso can be mixed with Golden Acrylics to produce a range of coloured grounds.
