Liberon Gesso is a traditional Gesso preparation that is ready to use as a surface coating prior to gilding, to repair gilt frames, or as a glue to join broken pieces of old gesso or plaster and then fill any missing parts.




How to use

Heat using a bain marie until the Gesso becomes warm and fluid.

Apply successive coats with a brush until required level is reached. Each coat can be applied as soon as the previous one is cold. After a few hours the Gesso will set hard and can then be smoothed carefully with a very fine abrasive.

When using the Gesso with metal leaf wet the Gesso to reactive its adhesive properties prior to laying the metal leaf.
