Liquitex Color Gesso

Available in two colors

Surface Preparation Medium
Texture: Fluid
Sheen: Matte
Relative Opacity: Opaque

Liquitex Black and Neutral Grey Colored Gessos are premium acrylic gessos used to prepare painting surfaces for acrylic and oil paint. Using pre-mixed gesso is more convenient than tinting clear gesso. Priming a canvas in black or neutral grey eliminates the starkness of white and provides strong contrast.

  • Non-yellowing 
  • Flexible and non-cracking 
  • Provides the perfect "tooth" and adhesion to a wide variety of surfaces including canvas, paper and wood 
  • Excellent base coat primer for many applications for example, murals. 
  • One coat is usually all that is required 


  • Use undiluted or thin up to 25% with water 
  • When thinning more than 25% use an equal mixture of water and Liquitex Matte Medium to thin gesso 
  •  Tint color with Liquitex Soft or Heavy Body Artist Colors
