A semi-absorbent primer for canvas, qualified for oil-, acrylic- water- and tempera painting, especially for glazing technique, it is a more absorbent variant of Lascaux Prime.
Textiles like painting canvas, cotton, jute, etc. should be sized with Lascaux Acrylic Sizing. On sized textiles Lascaux Primer or Lascaux Gesso is applied slightly diluted to improve the brush ability. On unsized textiles, Lascaux Gesso should be diluted 1:1 with water for the first coat. After approx. 4 – 6 hours ( according to the temperature ) a second coat may be applied, if desired with diluted Primer. Between the two coatings, uneven fibers and knots can be flattened with a fine abrasive paper. Coated fabrics can be rolled.
On absorbent supports like paper, cardboard, fiber-board etc., Lascaux Primer or Gesso is applied diluted with 10 – 15 % of water, as required.
On wood or concrete, a preliminary impregnation with Lascaux Hydro Sealer, diluted 1:4 with water, is recon-mended. For the following coat of Lascaux Primer or Gesso, dilute with 25% of water.
