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 Gesso Surface Prep Medium is a premium acrylic gesso used to prepare painting surfaces for acrylic and oil paint. Excellent base coat primer for many applications, including murals; one coat is usually all that is required. 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: Use undiluted or thin up to 25% with water. When thinning more than 25%, use an equal mixture of water and Liquitex Matte Medium to thin gesso. Tint with up to 10% Liquitex Soft Body or Heavy Body Artist Colors.

From the manufacturer

Liquitex Acrylic Mediums

In addition to the widest array of Professional and Student colors, Liquitex offers the broadest possible range of acrylic mediums to inspire creativity at every stage of the painting process. The brand understands that mediums are often a difficult concept to grasp until you actually dive into them, so they have tried to simplify usage by classifying products in three distinct categories: Prep, Paint and Finish.

Clear Gesso Super Heavy Gesso Colored Gesso BASICS Gesso
Also available: Clear Gesso provides an ideal degree of tooth for pastel, oil pastel, graphite, and charcoal as well as an excellent ground for acrylic and oil paints. An innovative, impasto, titanium white gesso having the ability to hold sculptural shape. Establishes a color ground while providing all the attributes of traditional acrylic gesso. BASICS Gesso is a good quality, value, priced surface preparation alternative to professional grade gesso.
This gesso is ideal for painting over colored or patterned surfaces. Ideal for thick and sculptural application with a knife or brush. As with traditional gesso, colored gessoes also give opaque surface coverage. Usually takes two coats to seal supports.

Dries clear as advertised but does have a bit of a gritty texture. It's still easy to paint and draw on but it almost feels like it rubs off on your fingers a little. Though if you leave it to dry fully before doing anything to it I reckon it should be fine. The bottle is a little on the small side but a it's a good price so I guess that's fair. I would recommend this product.

NB: I used it to prime canvas shoes that I went on to paint.

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

This has a good tooth and works well for sealing and providing grainy texture onto paper or on top of various media; eg inktense. Also works well to activate Neocolor watercoluble crayons [Caran d'Ache]. The colours enrich and are sealed with the clear gesso, giving me a surface to apply other media without the sublayer moving or washing out. Love this.

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.

Purchased this as an alternative primer for painting miniatures. Have had mixed results depending on the quality and type of miniatures I was priming. With cheap plastic it had a lot of pinhole bubbles appear as it dried, I can only assume due to a reaction to the quality of the plastic, however with decent quality miniatures it did a really decent job of priming the miniatures.You just need to be aware in advance the results can be hit and miss and may require a bit of experimentation to find out what does and does not work, and where you need to thin the Gesso or not.

If you are looking for an alternative to spray priming if you have no outdoor space to do so, i would definitely recommend giving this a try.

I like this gesso because it is very smooth and covers well. A bit more expensive but if you don't need a large tub it works well.

A very thick gesso. I have to water it down, otherwise it tends to texturise my paper or canvass.

No the sellers fault exactly but the product Completely miss represented itself. This is NOT transparent. I ruined three days of work believing it would dry clear as the name suggests.
