Liquitex Surface Preparation Gesso Mediums

Liquitex Surface Preparations are used to seal, prime and add tooth (for colour adhesion) to all surfaces such as canvas, wood, paper and metal. This same preparation is used for both acrylic and oil paint. Liquitex professional gessoes usually take just 1 coat.

All Liquitex gesso is flexible/non-cracking and does not yellow over time. Adding Liquitex Soft Body colour to any gesso creates customized tints and primers. Note, if using more than 1 coat, sanding between coats is recommended.

These Liquitex surface preparations are available below in a range of sizes. Larger sizes may be available to order - please email us to enquire.
