“it creates a glow reminiscent of Renaissance-era work”
After years of this product being discontinued from the market due to the lack of affordable ingredients, Daniel Smith has rereleased their popular Gold Gesso.
Gold Gesso is both an acrylic ground and a water based paint that can be used with watercolor, oil and acrylic. Used as a ground, it creates a glow reminiscent of Renaissance-era work. In addition the gesso makes the paper tougher. It becomes easier to lift the watercolor off the paper. 300 lb (640 gm/m 2) cold press or rough papers work best.
This product is now available from our sales floor as well as our webstore.
