In this edition of Test Tuesday, we are testing gesso. Gesso is a medium used to prepare surfaces, such as wood panels or canvas, for painting. I am using Liquitex Basics Acrylic Gesso.
The gesso applied well to all of my foam board samples. More importantly it stuck well to all the surfaces. Even scratching the gesso on the Readi-Erase and Readi Water Resistant samples didn’t cause the material to pull or up or flake. Bending the No Paper sample didn’t cause the gesso layer to crack either.
