A permanent, flexible water-based ground for canvas, board, wood panels or paper. High Tooth Gesso dries to a bright white, matte surface that provides much more grit and absorbency than a standard gesso, making it perfect for encaustic work or as a primer for soft pastel and oil pastels. This medium is best applied with a flat brush or a roller. A minimum of two coats is recommended to ensure complete coverage. Allow 1 to 2 hours of drying time between coats.
