This is not just another primer! After many years of talking to artists and listening to their needs, Michael Harding has specifically formulated a primer to be non- absorbent. This means artists will no longer be frustrated by the dullness of paint which has had the oil drawn out resulting in flat, muted looking paint surfaces. Countless artists ask the question, “Why has my paint gone dull overnight?” The reply is always a question in return; “Did you paint upon an acrylic primed surface?” The replies have always been, “Yes how did you know?”

Although this product is non absorbing it will provide a strong bond to the layers of paint applied with just enough tooth so not to be greasy in feel. The result after painting upon non-absorbent acrylic primer: oil paint colours that look as though you have just brushed them on to your canvas!

Available in 500 ml & 1 Liter sizes. Currently the only available colour is white however, additional colours are under development.
