Gesso prepares surfaces for painting and other applications. Priming a surface with gesso is highly recommended for all surfaces. Foremost it provides a ground surface for paint to adhere to, reflect or absorb light and protects the substrate which is very important for painting with oils. It also seals and prevents paint from being absorbed directly into the surface, therefore reducing the amount of paint consumed.
Rheotech Gessos are made by Tri-Art (CANADA) with a high concentration of 100% acrylic emulsion and contain calcium carbon- ate for the best strength, adhesion, coverage and flexibility. It is a suitable pH neutral ground for both acrylic and oil paints. It is water permanent when dry and will not crack, rub, flake or lift from the substrate. Gesso is traditionally white and opaque in coverage, it provides a reflective layer that enhances colour vibrancy.
