      R&F Encaustic Gesso

      $9.91

      Encaustic Gesso provides an easy-to-use, water-based ground specifically formulated for use with encaustic paints. This gesso differs from typical acrylic gesso by having a lower proportion of binder to solid, which enables it to be highly absorbent while retaining the adhesive qualities of the acrylic.

      With Encaustic Gesso artists can easily apply a brushable white ground that quickly dries to a ready-to-paint surface.

      Available in 4 oz. and 16 oz. jars

      FLAX art & design is a genuine Oakland institution. Opening their first store in 1938, they're now on their 3rd generation of family ownership and have recently relocated to a beautiful new Downtown location that could best be described as a "toy store for artists." 80 years in and they're still putting art and community front and center. You can visit them at their own site here, or find more of their products right here on Keep Oakland Alive.
