A very clear size and ground that keeps the working surface visible. Clear Gesso provides an ideal degree of tooth for pastel, oil pastel, graphite, and charcoal as well as an excellent ground for acrylic and oil paints. This gesso is ideal for painting over colored or patterned surfaces or over and under drawing. Mix with acrylic color to establish a tinted transparent/translucent ground. Dries clear to translucent depending on thickness. One coat is usually enough.
