We’re very excited to introduce the world’s first eco-friendly and vegan gesso for artists. Our naturally non-toxic, gesso is a professional, archival-quality kit that is perfect for earth and health-conscious artists. 

Made with French marble dust, limestone powder, titanium dioxide pigment and plant-based binders, this gesso is superb quality, 100% non-toxic and vegan.

The full kit makes 50 fl. oz. of gesso, which is enough to prime about 10-15 medium-sized canvases.

 

Also available - extra packet of Methyl Cellulose (Plant based glue) - when mixed with water makes 1 quart jar (32 oz.) of glue. Perfect for priming raw wood if you'd like the wood grain to remain visible.
