Michael Harding Non Absorbent Acrylic Primer


After talking to artists and listening to their needs, Michael Harding specifically formulated his 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 a flat, muted looking paint surfaces. Countless numbers of artists have called him over the years asking the question, “Why has my paint gone dull overnight?” His 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 as 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 and a long-lasting support that will not decay over the years!

Quality Product

My name is C.R.Mindle, Patricia is my mother. The brushes I bought are fantastic, as I would expect from Trekell. But what I was especially pleased with is Michael Harding's Non Absorbent Acrylic Primer, I work in oils and have often struggled with a dulling of my colors after putting hours if not weeks and months into a piece, but after trying this Primer I was in awe at the brightness and colorfastness, I'll nevergoback

Time saver

I have no time for oil ground these days (yay, having a kindergartener at home 24/7!) so this has been amazing to use. Very little prep, very little clean up, and it is just as good as oil ground for preparing a raw panel.

This stuff is amazing!

This is so much faster and easier to use than oil ground. Amazing coverage and dries quickly. You can completely prime your surface and be ready to oil paint in the same day. The finished surface is as good as using a traditional oil ground. Easy clean up with water.
