Traditional Glue Gesso For Panels

Creates an ivory smooth, brilliant white surface, ideal for egg tempera or meticulous rendering in oils. Use one part whiting to one part zinc white dry pigment to one part rabbit skin glue. Blend the dry pigments together in an enamelled pan, & add a small amount of warmed glue solution; work out the lumps before you add more glue. Let the finished gesso stand warm for half an hour before using.
