View Full Version : Acrylic Gesso - Drying Time?

I want to try watercolor on gesso coated paper. Last night I gave a thin coat of gesso to a sheet of watercolor paper. This morning when I tried a test on a corner, the gesso softened and rubbed off when I painted water on it. Does it always do this? Is it just not dry? How long does it take to dry all the way?
