Gesso and Priming Materials

Cheap Joe's Art Stuff offers a variety of well prepared canvas products and accessories. Gesso and Priming Materials provide a slight texture for your painting surface to provide adherence for the paint. Without gesso, the paint would soak into the weave of the canvas. However some many gessos may be sanded smooth for personal preference. The beauty of gesso is that it may applied it to nearly any surface, providing the artist with endless possibilities.
