Re: Other PVAc primers/sealers. LIQUITEX CLEAR GESSO

loris, paul,

i'm not sure whether the clear gesso is based on acrylic or something else, hence the question if someone has tried it before.
liquitex won't say what's in it. so probably it's not acryl. but who knows.

fillers (except for transparent/translucent silica fume maybe,
completely speculating here). Anyway, since acrylic gesso with all
those fillers doesn't work, I'd bet that clear acrylic gesso would not

did anyone ever try the liquitex clear gesso (not the normal white one)?
i can't find any info on its ingredients, not even in the datasheet. the
normal gesso is labelled as "acrylic" in the datasheet, so i'd guess that
the clear gesso is based on a different substance.
