    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Shari asks: "What do you use clear gesso for?"
    A: Gesso is a primer, used to prepare a surface for painting. You can apply clear gesso to allow the original color, pattern or print of a surface to show through (like a book page, collage, etc). It also has a little grit mixed in, which makes it a good surface prep for dry media like pastels, pencils, etc. I've also used it to give a little extra 'tooth' to a pencil drawing so I could add a white highlight over a colored area.
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Jogry has a use for the Double Pocket Bag tutorial: "Love this bag, and the easy to follow tutorial. I have so many received cards which I will recycle and put these in the bags as gifts for my girlfriends."
