Gesso and Grounds


Golden Gesso is a flexible ready-to-use ground that prepares the surface of a substrate to accept paints and provides tooth to promote paint adhesion. It is formulated to accept a wide variety of media on many commonly used painting surfaces. Golden Gesso is available in Black or White and can be mixed with Golden Acrylics to produce a range of coloured grounds.

Sandable Hard Gesso

Absorbent Ground
Golden Absorbent Ground is an acrylic liquid surfacing medium that can be used to create a porous paper-like surface on many different substrates. It also allows watercolours to be used on a stable prepared surface. It is not intended as a gesso alternative. It must be applied over a pre-primed surface due to its fragile paper-like nature. Once properly sealed it is a permanent acrylic film that does not need to be kept under glass.

Acrylic Ground for Pastels
Apply this translucent acrylic ground to paper, board, or any surface you wish. It provides a rough, gritty tooth, making it perfect for use with pastel, graphite, chalk or charcoal, and for the preparation of canvas and other supports for pastels. It can be blended with Golden Acrylic colors for coloured grounds, or with Golden Fine or Coarse Pumice Gel to increase tooth.
