Surface preparations set the foundation for stable and permanent colour applications by sealing and adding tooth to almost any painting surface. Liquitex offer a selection of different types of prep acrylic medium products to accommodate all types of work, their acrylic medium preps do not crack or yellow over time.
Always use a quality artist's gesso if you want a lasting, archival base - a low-cost ground will flake and separate from your support, taking your work with it. With proper application and under the right conditions, a professional gesso like this will last generations.
