Why Use GESSO?
Gesso is used for sealing your canvas before painting. When you buy a canvas from your art store it usually comes from overseas and the primer may have waxes and silicons in the primer, when you apply your paints, you may find that they do not
stick or cover properly.
Gesso will cover any wax and silicon and provide a good tooth for your paint which will allow them to cover correctly.
