Liquitex Super Heavy Gesso


What it does

  • Gives a textured matte white, opaque finish which provides a professional standard, archival base to help maintain the longevity of your work
  • Adds 3D texture and acts as an ideal base for thick sculptural shape and weight
  • Primes surfaces and adds maximum tooth for maximum colour adhesion and stability
  • Stiffens canvases and creates the optimum absorbency for paint application
  • Always use a quality artist's gesso if you want a lasting, archival base - a low-cost ground will flake and separate from your support, taking your work with it. With proper application and under the right conditions, a professional gesso like this will last generations

How to use it

  • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
  • Can be thinned with Liquitex Gesso
  • Sand hard or shiny surfaces first, apply to support with a knife/brush and leave to dry for at least 24 hours before starting to paint
  • Add acrylic colour for a custom tint - Soft Body Acrylic is the optimum consistency
