A fluid primer that does not need further dilution for easy brushing out. Because of a high titanium white pigment content, Langridge Acrylic Primer has excellent hiding power needing only one coat application. A second coat may be needed for extremely absorbant surfaces. When applying to canvas (cotton or linen) the water content will swell the canvas fibres. When the primer dries the swollen fibres, now held in place by the acrylic resin, will tend to give the surface a rough, abrasive surface. If wanting a smoother surface, lightlysand using a pumice stone with a flat face. Pumice is less aggressive than commercial abrasive papers which have the potential to cut and weaken the canvas fibres. Once lightly sanded and wiped down with a dry cloth, a second coat of Acrylic Primer may be applied
