Gesso is one of my fave art supplies. Seriously.
Here's the proof that I mean business when it comes to gesso *winks*.... and Liquitex is currently my fave brand. :)
I use the regular gesso to prep my journal pages and use the super heavy gesso with a stencil to add texture to my pages.
Gesso is basically plaster of Paris. It dries hard and a little stiff making it a great primer for thin pages as it makes them stronger.
My art journal pages were done with a paint brush, acrylic paints, gesso and my fingers. :)
