PREPARING WOOD PANELS FOR PAINTING

1. Vacuum and wipe down all surfaces with tack cloth- or slightly damp dustless cloth.

2. Apply sealer to all surfaces, front and back. Most recommended sealers are Golden GAC100 Medium, Golden Gloss Medium(recommended by Golden as the best option), Gamblin PVA Sizing and Kilz(a commercial sealer available in hardware/paint stores.) If using Golden Gloss Medium, because it is thicker than GAC100 and Gamblin PVA Sizing, spread it as thinly as possible and sand lightly with very fine sandpaper(150 grade or finer) between coats. Use tack cloth(or damp cloth) after sanding each time. Two coats of sealer are recommended.

3. Apply primer to front surface. Painting over a sealed surface would work but best adherence will be with a gesso ground. Acrylic gesso is the best choice for wood surfaces. If you want the grain exposed, a clear gesso would work. There are also other grounds that Golden makes: Absorbent Ground, Ground for Pastels, Silverpoint Ground, Black Gesso. All of these should be applied similarly. 1-3 coats, lightly sanding-and wiping- between dried coats.
