GESSO


Derivan Gesso is a great primer for canvas, board or even paper. The strong white ground gives an excellent tooth for easy paint manipulation.

Being a water-based product, Derivan Gesso can be thinned down with water if desired. If working on canvas, Derivan Gesso will tighten the canvas when dry giving a taut ground on which to paint.

Derivan Gesso can be used to paint over old acrylic works to give the artist a like new surface to paint on. If more than one coat is desired, then it is advisable to sand lightly between coats to obtain a smooth finish.


Available in 250ml, 500ml, 2 Litre and 4 Litre sizes.

Looking After Your Art Brushes
