Distressing Acrylic (Gesso)


This is another technique that I've used in my last project for "My Acrylic Album". This technique is very simple. Just use a thick card board and apply some gesso on one of it's edges. Then, scrape the edge against the acrylic pieces. You can scrape on the edges of your acrylic pages and acrylic embellishment too. To add some colours to your acrylic, you can mixed the gesso with some acrylic paints before you do the step above.

Okay..I got lost. The picture you are showing...is of what? Where is the gesso used in that picture? Is it to seal the edges or to cover the entire chipboard? Just curious.

I love your work. I am just fascinated by it!

Hi jules,

The gesso are areas which are covered in white in the pic. Check out the finished project in my next post. Thanks!
