Cranfield Spectrum Thixotropic Alkyd Oil Primer
PLEASE ALLOW 7 - 10 DAYS DELIVERY
A multi-purpose primer for all types of oil painting supports. Your canvas will need to be sized with rabbit skin glue before priming. You can also use an acrylic sealer in place of rabbit skin glue before applying thixotropic alkyd primer. A reminder: the acrylic seal should be entirely dry before applying the primer.
Once your sealer is dry, use one coat of this multi purpose thixotropic alkyd primer to give an opaque gesso-like surface for all types of oil painting supports. Thixotropic Alkyd Primer is a best seller from Spectrum. The word thixotropic means sometimes fluid and sometimes gel - this primer becomes fluid when stirred and returns to a gel state when allowed to stand. (Thixotropic means a fluid which is viscous but becomes freer-flowing when it is shaken or brushed on, and which returns to its viscous state over a predictable timescale when it comes to rest) These qualities are useful to artists in offering controllable application and reliable drying. This is Cranfield Colours multi-purpose primer for all types of oil painting, allowing paint to adhere consistently and offering an opaque gesso-like surface suitable for all types of painting supports. Oil primers are only suitable for use with oil paints Spectrum - Thixotropic Alkyd Primer
