Build your art on a strong foundation with Matisse Background Colors: an all-purpose pure acrylic that can be applied to almost any surface. Matisse Background Colors are a highly pigmented low-tooth gesso. Used directly onto wood, the Background Color will not only cover and create a great surface to paint on, but will also seal the surface with its built-in sealer.
All Matisse Background Colors are especially designed for use on canvas (and board, etc.) however they have also been used extensively in interior domestic decoration.
Matisse Background Colors can also be used with stencils, design painting, or simply as a flat decorative wall and ceiling paint. Apply direct from the jar and clean up with water. They spread easily with brush or roller and dry fast to a matt-velvet finish. Matisse Background Colors make an ideal colored gesso. They come in 250ml "stack-up jars"
