FREDRIX OIL GLUE SIZING is a necessary sizing to protect the canvas from deterioration caused by direct contact with an oil priming. Without sizing, the oil will cause the fibers to rot, and eventually tear. Used in combination with a water mix gesso, it allows you to avoid both the turpentine-based oil gessos and the acrylic gessos with plasticizer additives. Glue sizing combined with marble gesso is the historic approach to preparing a canvas. It has the added benefit of allowing the artist to select a specific raw canvas to use, based on expense and the style of the painting. 1 lb. dry sizing mix.
