I want to do something that seems incredibly basic: paint with oils on wood without covering up the wood. That is, I want the wood grain to show through/around my painting. So I do not want white gesso/acrylic ground. I have been hunting for the answer to this question for some time. Finally I posted the question on Facebook and lo and behold, Liquitex makes clear gesso! Such a tiny little piece of information to be so hard to find. Maybe I was searching wrong. At any rate I am posting this so others that might be searching for how to prime or seal wood panels to take oil paints without painting them white have the information.
