Directions for Lascaux Primer and Gesso
Textiles like painting canvas, cotton, jute, etc. should be sized with Lascaux Acrylic Sizing. On sized textiles Lascaux Primer or Gesso is applied slightly diluted to improve the brushability. On unsized textiles, Lascaux Gesso should be diluted 1:1 with water for the first coat. After approx. 4 - 6 hours (according to the temperature) a second coat may be applied, if desired with diluted Primer. Between the two coatings, uneven fibres and knots can be flattened with a fine abrasive paper. Coated fabrics can be rolled.On absorbent supports like paper, cardboard, fibreboard etc., Lascaux Primer or Gesso is applied diluted with 10 - 15% of water, as required.On wood or concrete, a preliminary impregnation with Lascaux Hydro Sealer, diluted 1:4 with water, is recommended. For the following coat of Lascaux Primer or Gesso, dilute with 25% of water.Lascaux Gesso should not be used below the temperature of +8°C (+46°F).Lascaux Primer or Gesso can be tinted with acrylic colours.
