gessobord

  • Superior quality artist-grade acrylic gesso!
  • Slight, even surface texture allows for ideal brush control and even tonal values without distracting from your image
  • Delicate enough for fluid brush strokes, portraits, and tight detail work
  • Can hold heavy applications of paint without the “bounce” of canvas
  • Tough enough to hold the most rigorous palette knife painting and collage

  • Unlimited Techniques — etching, erasing, reworking, adding color and scratching it away!

  • Similar to chalk/gypsum gessoed panels of the Renaissance used for egg tempera and oils
  • pH neutral, acid-free clay coating sanded to an ultra-smooth and absorbent finish
