Jack Richeson White Gesso 32 fl. oz.


***DISCONTINUED, limited to stock on hand***

Here are 3 simple tests to find out if YOUR gesso is of professional quality:

  1. Pour a 4" thick pool of gesso on a disposable paper palette. Let it dry for 1 week. Peel off the gesso. Flex to look for cracks.
  2.  Paint several coats of gesso on a sheet of watercolor paper and let it dry for a few days. Pour linseed oil on the coated surface to see if it bleeds through.
  3.  Coat a canvas with gesso. Let it dry for a few days. Rub with a dark wet cloth to see if gesso has become permanent. Dark cloth should not show any white residue.
