Gesso is a very versatile medium that has many uses. There are different colors of Gesso, but for this article I will be referring to “WHITE GESSO”.
White Gesso is a paint mixture that consists of a binder mixed with chalk, gypsum, pigment, or any combination of these.
Gesso provides a strong tooth for paint application. It can also be used alone as a white paint color. You can also add colored paint to white Gesso to tint or color it. You can control this with the ratios that you use of gesso to paint. You can also add different mediums to Gesso.
Again…it is an extremely versatile medium. Your best bet is to play with it and experiment! Just have fun!
If you have any questions in regards to Gesso please let us know.
