Golden GAC 400


Golden Gac 400


  • Can replace rabbit skin glue as a canvas primer

  • Doesn’t offer the same stiffness

  • Must be applied directly to the canvas if not it will flake

  • It is ineffective over any other surface

  • It is an acrylic polymer( it is not hygroscopic)

  • Rabbit skin glue is hygroscopic which means its always water soluble even completely dry ( high humidity will re-introduce water into the film causing it to soften or swell up over time it will crack) and delamination

  • The use of Gac 100 over Gac 400 is recommended for oil painting

  • Coat both front and back of canvas for maximum stiffness

  • Sizes available :8oz 16oz
