Knock-Knock? Who's There? Gesso Gesso Who? Prima Marketing Art Basics Clear Gesso
The Art Basics Clear Gesso is a clear matte graound acrylic. This is basically a Fancy Schancy "ARTSY" way of say that this is a really neat medium that is very similar to acrylic paint, only thinner. It dries hard, making the surface more stiff and in this case, it dries completely clear. In other words, Gesso prepares (or primes) your pages for painting. It makes the surface slightly textured by giving it some "tooth" which allows your paper to accept a variety of media.
Without Gesso, Journalers run the risk of their artwork bleeding through. Gesso protects even the most delicate of surfaces, like bible pages, without any bleed-through. YES! Did you know you can paint and watercolor right on your bible pages?! Well, using this Prima Marketing Art Basics Clear Gesso, makes that possible. Not only can you paint and watercolor on your bible pages you can still see the text print right though! How amazing is that?!
This clear gesso is also great for mixing with pgments, paints, sprays, stains and inks to creat a range of customized colored grounds.
