Liberon Ready Made White Gesso, 150ml
Liberon gesso is a traditional gesso preparation that is ready to use as a surface coating prior to gilding, to repair gilt frames, or as a glue to join broken pieces of old gesso or plaster and then fill any missing parts.
Ensure the surface is clean and dust free, heat the gesso in a bain marie until the gesso becomes warm and fluid. Apply successive with a brush until deired level is reached. Each coat can be applied as soon as the previous one is cold. After a few hours the gesso will set hard and can be smoothed carefully with a fine abrasive.
When using gesso with metal/Gold/Silver leaf wet the gesso to reactivate its adhesive properties prior to laying on the leaf.
