Amsterdam Acrylic Gessos – Royal Talens


Gesso helps you create the perfect base for your artwork on virtually any surface. It provides you with an absorbent surface after drying, which makes it the perfect base for not only acrylic paint, but for oil paint as well. Gesso can be thinned with water and applied either in thin layers or one thick layer to create more texture.

Because gesso is based on acrylic resin, you can easily mix it with your favorite acrylic colours to add some color to your background. To create lighter pastel colours, White gesso is the perfect mixing base. Use Black gesso for rich, dark colours. If you want your colour to stay virtually the same as in the tube, we recommend using the Transparent gesso! You can also use Transparent gesso on its own to show the surface you’re working on.
