Golden Gesso is a flexible liquid ground that seals, protects, and gives "tooth" to substrates, which promotes paint adhesion. It is formulated to accept a wide variety of media on many commonly used painting surfaces. It comes ready-to-use, but can be mixed with water for thinner applications. When applied in thin layers, Golden Gesso will conform to a variety of textured surfaces.
Golden Gesso is available in Black or White, and can be mixed with Acrylics to produce a range of coloured grounds.
Black Gesso gives an extremely dense black finish, with a beautiful semi-matt surface.
Golden Sandable Hard Gesso is formulated with 100% acrylic polymer emulsion. It contains high levels of titanium dioxide, calcium carbonate and talc to produce a sandable surface which is smoother and more even than one created using regular gesso.
NOTE: This product is designed for rigid substrates only (such as hardboard, wood or metal panels) and is NOT to be used on flexible materials, as cracking may occur.
Only apply to surfaces prepared with one or more coats of regular gesso. Apply in multiple thin layers, gradually building up to the desired thickness. A single thick layer tends to crack upon drying. Allow to dry completely before sanding. Cured acrylic films are easier to sand. Start with coarser grit sandpapers, followed by subsequently finer grits until desired smoothness is achieved.
