This water-based Universal Primer is superb for preparing surfaces for painting. It is a bright white opaque primer with an absorbent character. Mont Marte Gesso may be used on canvas, cardboard and wood. Once dry, Gesso may be painted on with acrylics and oils. Mont Marte Gesso is acid free and provides an absorbent surface to paint on.
Apply two thin coats of Gesso for a smooth surface with Mont Marte Gesso Brushes. May also be applied with a palette knife for a more textured effect. Touch dry within 2 hours, longer for heavier application. Clean up with water.
using Gesso on a pre-primed canvas gives your painting a smoother, more even surface
the smooth surface allows paint to flow freely and won't get lost in the weave of the canvas
reduces acidity levels of paper and wood, giving your painting longer life when using these supports.

All freight companies used by Craft2u are general carriers and therefore do not cover damage or loss of goods in transit. Craft2u offers a simple insurance option.
Insurance on the website is an Opt-Out option. In other words, it is automatically included. The only way it cannot be included is if you specifically untick the Insurance checkbox. This is your tacit agreement that you choose not to insure the goods.
If you do not accept the insurance charge, you will do so at your own risk and any damage and/or loss is your responsibility. In all cases, we HIGHLY recommend the optional protection of insurance.
