After talking to artists and listening to their needs, Michael Harding has 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 a flat, muted looking paint surfaces. Although this product is non-absorbing it will provide a strong bond to the layers of paint applied with just enough tooth so as not to be greasy in feel. The result after painting upon my non-absorbent acrylic primer: oil paint colours that look as though you have just brushed them on to your canvas and a long-lasting support that will not decay over the years!
Apply 2 coats. The first coat may be applied 25% diluted with water to increase flow and coverage if required. Apply a second coat once the first coat is touch dry (approx.. 1 hour). This product may be applied to linen, wood, MDF and other supports to produce a strong, flexible, permanent, highly pigmented white ground. Suitable for as a ground for both acrylic and oil paint. It may even be applied over inexpensive standard primed canvases to render them non-absorbent!
NOTE: Do not apply over rabbit skin/hide glue or to unsound supports such as cardboard and flimsy supports!
