Using the canvas or linen of your choice, we will expertly stretch and, if you desire, prime with either our STANDARD PRIME or our premium PANEL PRIME.
STANDARD PRIME involves a basic double coat of Professional quality Titanium Dioxide Acrylic Gesso, lightly sanded between coats. It is best when a slight texture is desired and when cost is a consideration. Multiple coats can be applied as desired.
Our premium PANEL PRIME is exclusive to barronarts. A custom mixture of acrylic-based materials creates a highly sandable and ultra-smooth surface. Best results are obtained on panel, but when used on a canvas surface, superior smoothness is also obtained compared to standard gesso. Up to 8 coats are applied, each sanded, and the entire surface is finish-sanded to a beautiful white smoothness. It costs more, but many of our clients agree that it is well worth it!
