Gamble Ground makes a strong foundation for oil painting. Formulated from alkyd resin, titanium dioxide, and barium sulfate, Gamblin Ground makes fabric supports (canvas & linen) stiffer than acrylic gesso, and more flexible than traditional oil primers. Because of a higher percentage of pigments, painters need only apply 2 coats of Gamblin Ground instead of the recommended 4 coats of acrylic gesso. More coats can be added for smoother painting surfaces.

Gamblin Ground is formulated to be applied directly on panels without sizing or on canvas that has been sized with PVA or rabbit skin glue. Gamblin Ground is an excellent foundation for both oil colours and alkyd paints.

Add a layer of Gamblin Ground to canvas that has been pre-primed with acrylic gesso to make sure the canvas is properly sealed or to make a smoother surface.
