Michael Harding Non Absorbent Acrylic Primer

This is not just another primer! After many years of talking to artists and listening to their needs, I have specifically formulated my 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 numbers of artists have called me over the years asking the question, “Why has my paint gone dull overnight?” My 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 my non absorbent acrylic primer: oil paint colours that look as though you have just brushed them on to your canvas!

Michael’s Acrylic Primer is available through fine art retailers in Europe, United Kingdom, and select North American retailers.
