This background paint is truly brilliant. I’ve used it on a lot of different surfaces, most recently paper and it leaves a super flat surface to paint on unlike many gesso paints on the market, which tend to have a plasticky feel that some paints don’t adhere to well.
The absolute best background paint I have used. Great coverage and comes up a treat when you cover your piece with varnish once finished.
Very Happy with the service, prompt, on time and exactly what I asked for 5 stars would highly recommend.
