The Atlantis House acrylic primer produces a fine and smooth semi-gloss surface that is intensely white. This gives you a reliable painting ground for a variety of surfaces, for use with primarily oil and acrylic paints. This is our best-selling standard acrylic primer because of it's excellent covering strength and good flowing consistency at an affordable price. The resulting surface is smooth and low/non-absorbent, which enables paint to bind well onto the canvas. An added advantage for the artist of acrylic primers is their ease of use as no Rabbit Skin Glue size has to be prepared and applied under the primer.
Can be applied to cotton duck, linen, wood and hardboard, card and paper. Dries rapidly and is ready to paint within 20 minutes. It is recommended to apply two coats to most surfaces. It is generally advised to dilute the first coat by 10% with water to enable greater surface penetration to occur. The second coat can be applied neat from the original tub. The result is a permanent, flexible non yellowing ground that is suitable for Oil, acrylic and tempera painting.
1 Litre will cover approximately up to 14 square metres depending on surface porosity and dilution. Dilute when necessary with up to 10% water to thin. 10 square metres coverage (approximately) can be obtained when used undiluted. Two coats are normally fine for a well primed surface. Sand between coats for increased smoothness. To improve surface fineness after priming, apply each coat with brush strokes all in the same direction and apply second coat at right angles to the first again with all brush strokes in the same direction.
