A professional gesso creates the perfect base for your fine art work. Use Amsterdam gessoes on acrylics or oil to ensure the optimal color adhesion and stability ? on any surface of your choice. Work with a regular white gesso, or be bold and choose black ? without any loss of quality. Do you want the original surface to show through? Then start with a transparent gesso. Need more texture? Prep your surface with a modeling paste, and you?re off to a great start.
