Default Clear gesso and Holtz's distress micro glaze

So I just saw a new to me clear gesso out of ranger...three steps from the TH distress micro glaze. I checked and we talked about gesso vs grounds or vs other products...and that in white...this is clear

I am just curious on this one.....has anyone played with both and what do you think?
Gesso dries shiny. (does micro glaze? does not say) Both can be used to seal work. Glaze says you can do stuff on top of it....

I have clear gesso (not from Ranger) and it dries matte and a little toothy.

Gesso (clear, white or black) is primer, it dries matte and has tooth. The tooth varies by brand, some are smoother than others. It wouldn't be considered a sealer.

The micro glaze (I have the original from Judikins.)is a very different product, used for many techniques. Lots on YT: https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...ry=micro+glaze

That was one thing interesting to me...that the gesso I saw said it dried shiny but now I cant find it. Oh well if I ever see it again, I will link it. Not my smartest move-should have done that from jump. Sorry.. Perhaps I mis-read it.

Unlike white and black, clear gesso is good for going over an image. Say you did an acrylic pull off a gel press. And apparently there is varying toothiness.

Here is a fast vid. But no, as Vic said it is not a sealer.
