Info

Lascaux Gesso is a semi-absorbent, white acrylic primer which is light and age resistant. It has a good tooth, is a more absorbent variation of Lascaux Primer and is especially made for oil, acrylic, water and tempera painting. It provides a strong, flexible and absorbant ground.

Applications:

  • a semi-absorbent primer for canvas, qualified for oil-, acrylic- water- and tempera painting, especially for glazing technique
  • it is a more absorbent variant of Lascaux Primer

Directions for Lascaux Primer and Gesso:

Textiles like painting canvas, cotton, jute, etc. should be sized with Lascaux Acrylic Sizing. On sized textiles Lascaux Primer or Gesso is applied slightly diluted to improve the brushability. On unsized textiles, Lascaux Gesso should be diluted 1:1 with water for the first coat. After approx. 4 - 6 hours (according to the temperature) a second coat may be applied, if desired with diluted Primer. Between the two coatings, uneven fibres and knots can be flattened with a fine abrasive paper. Coated fabrics can be rolled on absorbent supports like paper, cardboard, fibreboard etc., Lascaux Primer or Gesso is applied diluted with 10 - 15% of water, as required. On wood or concrete, a preliminary impregnation with Lascaux Hydro Sealer, diluted 1:4 with water, is recommended. For the following coat of Lascaux Primer or Gesso, dilute with 25% of water. Lascaux Gesso should not be used below the temperature of +8°C (+46°F). Lascaux Primer or Gesso can be tinted with acrylic colors.

Coverage: approx. 50-100 ml / m2 per coat, depending on the support and application.
