View Full Version : Rough (Opposite of smooth) panel prep?

02-26-2019, 05:19 PM
I don't want my brush or knife to move. I plop paint down. It drives me up the wall when paint consistency or the surface is smooth. I was wondering if anyone added like sand to their oil ground in order to increase drag. Right now with both acrylics and oil i use a very thick gel added to the paint. But i would still like to decrease my panels smoothness even more (i have both acrylic gesso and oil ground).

Fine pumice, or marble dust added to your gesso.

Golden fine pumice gel.
Liquitex clear gesso.
