The classic white sealer and ground for absorbent surfaces, such as canvas, paper, or wood. Provides the proper surface sizing, tooth and absorbency for acrylic and oil paints. Traditional gesso is meant to be opaque titanium white for good coverage. Two coats are recommended under oil color. Apply it to raw canvas, hardboard, paper, wood, and other non-oily porous surfaces. Sand hard, shiny surfaces before applying. Can be tinted with acrylic colors but is not to be mixed with oil paints.
