Specialty Gessoes


Specialty gessoes are gessoes that are optimized for one particular technique or surface, not for general use. For example, panels and boards can be coated with a harder and less flexible gesso than canvas or fabric surfaces.


Acrylic gesso is ideal for painting with acrylic paints. Unlike gesso for oil painting, acrylic gesso doesn’t contain glue because acrylic paints are stable, noncorrosive, and won’t damage canvases. Gesso for oil painting contains glue to protect canvases because oils will corrode canvas over time.
