Product Description

Product Description

Liquitex offers the broadest range of acrylic mediums to inspire creativity at every stage of the painting process. Surface Prep Mediums are used to seal prime and add tooth (for color adhesion) to all surfaces such as canvas wood paper and metal. This same preparation is used for both acrylic and oil paint. Our professional gessoes usually take just one coat, and adding Liquitex Soft Body color to any gesso creates customized tints and primers. Liquitex Clear Gesso Surface Prep Medium is an ideal high tooth for pastel oil pastel graphite and charcoal.  Excellent ground for acrylic and oil paint.  Mix with acrylic color to have a tinted ground.  Dries clear to translucent depending on thickness.  Excellent base coat primer for many applications, including murals. Can be applied to any material or surface that will accept traditional acrylic media, such as canvas, paper, wood, etc.  Liquitex Surface Prep Mediums are lightweight, non-toxic, and dry to a water-resistant, non-yellowing surface. APPLICATION: For canvas, paper, wood, or any clean porous non-oily surface. Sizes and primes while maintaining the original appearance of the surface. Provides paper with good tooth for chalk and oil pastel techniques. Mix with a very small amount of transparent or translucent acrylic color to tint the ground, while maintaining transparency.

Great Gesso as you would expect from liquitex and totally clear when dry so great to go over collage etc without the worry of damaging previous layers it gives you a great surface to paint over without placement worry

I bought this to seal some layers in my mixed media art projects, especially oil pastels, so I could write on top of it with a pen. It does the job brilliantly, however I find the texture a bit too gritty for the pen to flow freely. I would prefer it to be smoother, more like my regular white gesso. It's definitely a useful product, but next time I will try a different brand to see if I can find something a bit smoother. I like how it dries completely clear and transparent.

Wouldn't be without this! 4 Dec 2013
By Speck - Published on Amazon.com
originally bought this to use as a ground for pastel work, but find myself using it for a lot of other things, my favorite being brushed onto any sturdy mixed media or watercolor paper...makes an awesome ground for water media such as watercolor, or watercolor pencils and crayons. Can use a roller for an even surface, or a brush for interesting texture. Allows a lot of layers of medium...and does not buckle paper, even if you don't stretch it. Some say you can use matte medium as a substitute for clear gesso - but I have not gotten the same effects, and so far, Liquitex is the only brand I have tried that has the gritty, sanded texture. It can also be used to "rejuvenate" over worked areas on sanded paper when using pastels...Highly recommended!

It's gesso, and I'm not sure if there is a "better" or "worse" way to view gesso. 27 Mar 2014
By R. Clay - Published on Amazon.com

I wanted to add 2 or 3 more coats of gesso to my pre-stretched canvases, because I like a good toothy background surface to do oil painting on, and figured that more gesso would give me more texture. I bought the gallon tub, thinking it would last a long time. And it has, of course -- a little goes a long way. If you put too thick a coat on, it may not be as flexible as you'd like, which means your painting may show signs of cracking in later years. Canvas needs to flex, so a few THIN coats of gesso is fine, but if you glob it on, you're asking for trouble.

Anyway, I found the Liquitex gesso easy to work with; it washes right off with warm water and some dishwashing liquid. I always make sure I get every atom of paint or gesso out of my brushes when I'm through with them, so they don't get clogged with old dry paint. This is especially important down at the base of the bristles. The Liquitex gesso came right out, and since it has very low odor and dries quickly, I had absolutely no problems or complaints. I even hand-stirred the tub using a bent coat hanger, and it blended nicely. This product is not like regular latex room or house paint -- it stays in suspension for a long time and the pigment doesn't seem to settle to the bottom, like most latex paints do.

I'd highly recommend Liquitex gesso. Maybe all gesso is about the same; but I'm not taking chances! I know Liquitex is a 5-star product at a good price from Amazon. That's all I need to know.

Great Tooth 7 Sep 2012
By L. L. Pretorius - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This clear gesso goes on quite nicely. The result is a clear finish with an almost sandpaper tooth. I prefer the tooth of this gesso over regular white gesso. I also use a foam roller to apply the product so there are no brush strokes. Excellent gesso!

works great 10 Jun 2013

Spreads nicely and self-levels with a paint brush. Drys pretty quickly, completely transparent and surface is nicely prepped for painting.
