Matisse Background Colours are all-purpose pure acrylic that can be applied to almost any surface. They are a highly pigmented low tooth gesso. Used directly onto wood, the Background Colour will not only cover and create a great surface to paint on, but will also seal the surface because it has a built-in sealer.
Matisse Background Colours can also be used with stencils, design painting, or simply as a flat decorative wall and ceiling paint. Apply direct from the jar and clean up with water. Matisse Background spreads easily with brush or roller and dries fast to a matt-velvet finish. Matisse Background Colours make an ideal coloured gesso.
