Utrecht Professional Acrylic Gesso

Canvas preparation forever changed when Utrecht introduced its Professional Acrylic Gesso in 1957. Utrecht created its formula with the belief that a solid foundation is essential to the appearance, stability, and longevity of an artist's work. The result is an acid-free, archivally sound formula considered to be one of the finest acrylic grounds available today.

Utrecht Professional Gesso is formulated with a high concentration of exceptional-grade titanium dioxide for optimal whiteness and outstanding covering power. The top-quality polymer binder produces a highly stable yet flexible surface that ensures no bleed-through. The heavy-bodied viscosity retains brushstrokes when applied in concentration, is self-leveling when applied smoothly, and can be sanded to a smooth finish for highly detailed work.

Use Utrecht Professional Gesso as a ground for oils, acrylics, alkyds, and water mixable oils on a variety of supports including linen, cotton, paper, board, wood, plaster, and stone.
