Winsor & Newton Artists' Acrylic Gesso Primer

It is important to prepare your painting surface with a gesso primer. This ensures a stable and sealed surface, as well as adding tooth. It is important to use a good quality primer as the longevity of the painting depends upon the primer and surface as much as the type of colour used.

Winsor & Newton Artists' Acrylic White Gesso is made from the highest quality acrylic resin. It has a superior level of pigmentation to give maximum covering power, so one coat is usually enough. However we recommend using two coats for unprimed canvases when used with oil colour. It is fast drying and opaque, and dries to give an excellent level of tooth and a balanced absorbency. It dries to a non-yellowing, flexible ground suitable for acrylic, oil and alkyd painting. It can be used straight from the pot and dilution is not recommended.

The Clear Gesso is made from unpigmented clear resin which provides excellent tooth but dries completely clear, therefore it doesn't change the original appearance of your ground. If you want to start your work from a coloured ground, you can make your own tinted gesso primers by the addition of acrylic colours. We recommend using up to 1 part Artists' Acrylic colour with 4 parts Clear Gesso, and opaque colours will give a better result. Clear Gesso is fast drying and provides a balanced absorbency. It dries to a flexible ground suitable for acrylic, oil and alkyd painting. It is also suitable for preparing a surface for pastel or charcoal.
