Golden Acrylic Gessos
These flexible gessos are ready-to-use liquid grounds for any commonly used painting surface. Apply in thin layers to a desired working surface in order to prepare it for accepting paints and mediums.
White and Black Gessos are flexible and when applied in layers they can quickly modify a variety of textured surfaces for painting without any cracking. Gesso can be brush, roller, trowel or spray-applied. Dilution of the Gesso is only necessary for spray application, but may be desired for brush or roller applications as well. A maximum dilution of 25% is recommended.
Sandable Hard Gesso is specially formulated to produce an easily sanded, smooth and even surface for painting. With this gesso, the artist can achieve the ultimate smooth surface for their particular vision. Sandable Hard Gesso is only to be used on inflexible substrates such as hardboard, wood panels or metal. Potential cracking may occur if used on highly absorbent surfaces like canvas.
All Golden Gessos can be mixed with acrylic paints to create a range of colored grounds.

Opening their first store in 1938, they're now on their 3rd generation of family ownership and have recently relocated to a beautiful new Downtown location that could best be described as a "toy store for artists." 80 years in and they're still putting art and community front and center. You can visit them at their own site here, or find more of their products right here on Keep Oakland Alive.
