Matisse Artists Black Gesso is a full-bodied, permanent, flexible black primer that is an excellent choice for preparing your surface for use. It is suitable for use on canvas, paper, board, or wood.

This Artists Black Gesso provides an excellent tooth for excellent paint manipulation and colour adhesion and stability. Matisse Gesso has excellent tooth and is perfect for painting with both acrylics and oils. The black gesso gives a dark background to start from, enhancing the luminosity of paints and suiting atmospheric or night-time pieces.

As it is a water-based product, the Artists Black Gesso can be used straight from the pot or thinned down with water if desired. When working with raw canvas or linen, it’s recommended to use dilute the gesso with water at a 1:1 ratio before applying.

If you are stretching your own canvas, make sure you stretch the canvas before applying Matisse Artists Black Gesso, as it will shrink and tighten the canvas as it dries and makes a firmer ground for painting.
