Now moving on to undercoats and primers, I have just one word to say to you just one word (no not plastics, your thinking of the film) GESSO. Now you have probably come across gesso undercoating and priming being discussed in the forums and on various blogs as have I, and ponder it you do (the Yoda in me). While shopping with my wife recently I came across some Jo Sonja products in a sale and bought a pot of gesso. Let me explain the what-for's, where-by's and how-to's of my purchase. I spent a lot of last year practising various painting techniques and styles etc. and among them was using white undercoat which I have come to appreciate but sometimes I think black, or indeed some other coloured undercoat, would be worth using.
