  • Mont Marte Gesso is acid-free and provides an absorbent surface to paint on.


Handy hints:

  • Apply two thin coats of Gesso for a smooth surface with Mont Marte Gesso Brushes. 

  • May also be applied with a palette knife for a more textured effect. 

  • Touch dry within 2 hours, longer for heavier application. 

  • Clean up with water.


Why use Gesso?

Using Gesso on a pre-primed canvas gives your painting a smoother, more even surface. 

The smooth surface allows paint to flow freely and won't get lost in the weave of the canvas.

Gesso also reduces acidity levels of paper and wood, giving your painting longer life when using these supports.
