White Gesso - Dina Wakley MEdia ... artist quality white opaque primer for preparing surfaces for painting, mixed media and visual arts. 1 (one) jar, 4 fl oz (118ml). Made by Ranger.
Ranger's Dina Wakley MEdia's artist quality White Gesso (also called grounds or primer) is a thick consistency, made of an acrylic base that is water soluble when wet. This quick drying gesso dries opaque white, flexible with a toothy finish. Gesso is used for preparing surfaces made of paper, card, canvas, wood, metal, plastic, chipboard, and fabric.
Gesso provides a subtle texture or tooth for paints and mediums to grab hold and ensure smooth application. It is ideal for making slippery surfaces more workable. When used for layering in mixed media, the gesso helps keep the layers separate - so that the upper layer doesn't sink into those below.
Use a brush, spatula, palette knife, silicon tool or sponge to apply to any surface in preparation of new artwork or adding layers. Apply through stencils or imprint with rubber stamps. Clean all tools, stamps and stencils straight after use.
Use as is or customise by mixing in acrylic or watercolour paints, inks, mica powder, mica flakes, glitter, sand, etc. Being transparent, colours mixed in usually retain their hue.
The wide mouth jar opening is ideal for quick, easy access and return of unused product to the jar. Cleans up with soap and water when wet.
Acid free and non-toxic. Jar size: 118ml (4oz).
