£13.32 £11.30Highly pigmented, dense black acrylic gesso. Apply 1-2 coats over dried coats of Standard Acrylic Size and/or Standard Acrylic Primer, to make high key black absorbent painting ground. Flexible. Apply two coats, thinned 10-30% with cold water.
£12.75 £10.85Transparent Coloured Gesso. Natural Earth pigments, in a flexible acrylic binding. The translucent nature of these pigments allows them to be used for glazing over opaque coloured gesso. For use with oil or acrylic.
£8.40 £7.15Standard low viscosity alkyd resin paint medium. Add 10-30% to oil colours, to increase drying time, create extra gloss and depth. Gentle flow properties: can be further diluted with Shellsol T low odour mineral solvent or turpentine.
£22.80 £19.35Extra thick blend of bleached beeswax, dammar resin and linseed stand oil. Adds body to oil colours and creates a slower tack to wet paint films. Add 10-20% to oil colour and apply with brush or palette knife up to thickness of 2-3mm maximum. Thicker layers will tend to take longer to dry and increase yellowing/darkening of dried paint film. Over-addition of beeswax paste to oil colours leaves the dried paint film fragile when exposed to high temperatures (beeswax melts at ca. 60°C).
