Liquitex Super Heavy Gesso 237 ml

A heavy, structured, titanium white acrylic ground to add 3D texture and maximum tooth to your surface.

Use with:

  • Acrylic and oil paints/mediums
  • Chalk and oil pastels
  • Graphite, pencil and charcoal

Use on:

  • Raw canvas
  • Hardboard and paper
  • Wood and non-oily, porous supports


  • Lightfast and archival
  • Permanent
  • Non-yellowing
  • Flexible and non-cracking
  • Water-resistant when dry
  • Intermixable with all Liquitex materials

What it does:

  • Gives a textured matte white, opaque finish which provides a professional standard, archival base to help maintain the longevity of your work
  • Adds 3D texture and acts as an ideal base for thick sculptural shape and weight
  • Primes surfaces and adds maximum tooth for maximum colour adhesion and stability
  • Stiffens canvases and creates the optimum absorbency for paint application
  • Always use a quality artist's gesso if you want a lasting, archival base - a low-cost ground will flake and separate from your support, taking your work with it. With proper application and under the right conditions, a professional gesso like this will last generations

    How to use it:

    • Fully intermixable with all Liquitex products
    • Can be thinned with Liquitex Gesso
    • Sand hard or shiny surfaces first, apply to support with a knife/brush and leave to dry for at least 24 hours before starting to paint
    • Add acrylic colour for a custom tint - Soft Body Acrylic is the optimum consistency
