Matisse Transparent Gesso and Pastel Primer MM26

Matisse’s Transparent Gesso is similar to regular Gesso only without pigmentation; therefore, giving a transparent (although not altogether clear) flexible primer for canvas, board or even paper with an excellent tooth for easy paint manipulation. If working on canvas, Matisse MM26 Transparent Gesso will tighten the canvas, making a firmer ground to paint on.

Matisse Transparent Gesso is a permanent, flexible, water based ground with excellent tooth and a transparent matte finish. It is ideal for priming canvases for acrylic and oil paintings.

It can also be used as a pastel primer and mixed with Matisse Background Colours to give a coloured primer with extra tooth. Mix 1 part Matisse Transparent Gesso with 2 parts Matisse Background Colour (up to equal parts), stir well; the resultant mixture will give a brilliant surface on paper, board or canvas with which to accept and hold pastels including oil pastels.
