Now that you have your Hardbord™ or Artist Panel Unprimed sealed completely, you are ready for priming. Whether you choose to use an oil based primer or a water based primer is up to you, and we have directions on both on our website.
One of the advantages to acrylic primer or acrylic gesso is a quicker drying time, and a primer that easily accepts any type of paint or mixed media on top. Below, I have outlined the steps for priming a sealed cradled Hardbord panel in this quick video using Golden Artist Colors Acrylic Gesso. Enjoy and feel free to ask any questions in the comments here or on our YouTube channel.
