Gamblin PVA Size 32 fluid ounce
Diluted with distilled water, PVA size is a contemporary size for fabric support. PVA seals the fabric but does not re-absorb atmospheric moisture, preventing the size layer from swelling and shrinking. It has a neutral pH and does not yellow, plus it retains its flexibility, does not emit harmful volatiles, and protects fabric from the ground. PVA does not tighten the fabric like rabbit skin glue, so stretch fabric tightly.

Gamblin Traditional Gesso
Gamblin Traditional Gesso is a dry mixture of rabbit skin glue, gypsum,
marble dust, and titanium dioxide. Robert Gamblin recommends applying
four coats of Traditional Gesso to both sides of thin or poorly braced
panels. Traditional Gesso is mixed with water and applied to panels, but
it is too brittle to use with fabric supports. Paintings on gesso
(either traditional or acrylic) are more matte because of the
high absorbency. In a 1 lb. container.
