Utrecht's Acrylic Canvas Sizing was developed for use as an easy and stable alternative to rabbit skin glue. Made of acrylic resins, it is polymerized for resistance to temperature, humidity, oil, and water.
This versatile ground can be used as a priming base for either oil or acrylics. It dries quickly for fast canvas preparation and cleans up easily with just soap and water. Welcome to a new generation of canvas preparation.

Comments about Utrecht Art Utrecht Acrylic Canvas Sizing:
I used this sizing on an old stretched canvas that was a little loose. I put two coast and it tightened up really well, making the canvas 'sound like a drum'. I would still add another layer of gesso on top before painting, though. I didn't for one of the canvases and the oil paint seeped through.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Used this to size my canvas. Worked really well though I can't compare it to RSG as I've never used it. It did take almost the whole jar for two coats on a 30"x45" canvas. Tightened up the canvas quite a bit before relaxing again a little. Really produced a nice, tight surface for the gesso application.Will definitely use it again, perhaps it can be thinned with water?
