Gamblin Traditional Gesso - 454g
Gamblin Gesso makes a traditional absorbent ground for oil paintings on panels.
"Gesso" is Italian for gypsum which, when mixed with water and animal glue, makes a luminous painting surface.
Gamblin Traditional Gesso is a dry mixture of rabbit skin glue, gypsum, marble dust, and titanium dioxide.
Robert Gamblin recommends applying four coats Traditional Gesso to both sides of thin or poorly braced panels. Traditional Gesso is too brittle to use with fabric supports

If there is likely to be any undue delay to your order we will attempt to contact you via phone or e-mail.
If there are any issues during delivery, the carriers will attempt to contact you by phone (if a number is provided).
