Very fine gesso. To make gesso ready for application, you need some Rabbit Skin Glue to mix with the gesso so that it stick better. The gesso has to be sieved to ensure that it does not contain any lumbs or impurities. When adding the gesso, the rabbit skin glue must be at 50 degree tempurture, place a spoon of gesso at a time in side the sieve gently.

There is no right ratio gesso to rabbit skin glue but you should stop adding gesso as soon as the gesso is no longer incorporated with the rabbit skin glue any more.

Now stir the mix gently untill you see the rabbit skin glue is now has the same consistency as before. Do not shake it as this will creat air pubbles in your mix.

Alsways apply the gesso when its warm. Any left over can be stored in the friedge for use later on.
