Directions for Lascaux Primer and Gesso:Textiles like painting canvas, cotton, jute, etc. should be sized with Lascaux Acrylic Sizing.

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 +8Â°C (+46Â°F). Lascaux Primer or Gesso can be tinted with acrylic colors.
