Gamblin Traditional Gesso

Gamblin Traditional Gesso
Gamblin Gesso makes a traditional absorbent ground
for oil paintings on panels. "Gesso" is
Italian for gypsum which, when mixed with water and animal glue, makes a
luminous painting
surface. Gamblin Traditional Gesso is a dry mixture of rabbit skin glue,
gypsum, marble dust,
and titanium dioxide. Robert Gamblin recommends applying four coats
Traditional Gesso to both
sides of thin or poorly braced panels. Traditional Gesso is too brittle
to use with fabric
supports.
