Gesso can be applied to a variety of surfaces such as raw canvas, wood, boards and even paper, to make them more suitable for use with paint. The gesso adds a tooth to the surface which makes it more ready to accept paint and the paint won't soak into the surface beneath the gesso as readily. Whether it's oil or acrylic painting, you will find the gesso or primer for your next piece at Eckersley's, shop our range of gessos and primers to prepare your surface for your next painting. From trusted brands such as Winsor & Newton, Matisse and Art Spectrum, you can be assured that you are creating the best blank surface to suit your chosen medium.
