As smooth as

Not my favourite job but it is a must if you want a super smooth finish to paint on. When mixing the whiting (chalk) with rabbit skin glue (size) you need to adjust the temperature and consistency just right and mix well. I have used gesso for a while now and there is a bit of an art to it. Plenly there for the largest horse and can be divided up if you do not want to apply all the coats at once. Leave to dry completely for 3 or 4 days and then use a fine grade abrasive to complete. You won't find a much smoother surface. Well worth the effort




Excellent service and response time
