An easy way to make real gesso. Mix equal amounts of water and the powder, wait a few hours for it to gel and then warm it until it is liquid enough to apply with a brush.

An easy way to make genuine glue grounds, also known as ‘traditional gesso’. This is not an acrylic "gesso" mix. It's the real thing: hide glue and whiting (chalk). But we've made it real easy: Mix equal amounts of warm water and Easy Gesso, wait a few hours for it to gel, and then warm it until it is liquid enough to apply with a brush. It can also be applied cold as a soft gelatinous mass similar in consistency to tofu. The difference between real gesso and acrylic "gesso" or primers is a silky soft surface that is absorbent to water-based paints.

Contains medium ground calcite (chalk) and rabbit skin glue.

Directions

  1. Into a container, mix equal parts by volume of dry Easy Gesso with warm water.

  2. Stir and allow to stand for at least two hours. It will gel.

  3. Place the container in a pot full of hot tap water—no hotter than 65° C (150° F). The gel will liquefy. Be sure that all glue flakes are completely dissolved.

  4. Apply the liquid gesso with a wide brush. Allow each coat to dry.

  5. Apply at least four coats to produce the best surface for painting. Sand the final coat, if desired, for a smoother surface.
