Actually, although it may not have turned out to be what you were looking for, the "bad" example is really very pretty...I like it a lot.

I haven't tried it yet, but I saw on another site where an artist applied the gesso with a brush using a circular pattern to give it just a bit of texture. When dry she drew on it with prismacolors and watercolor...it's gorgeous.

Default gesso Techniques

Thanks, Michelle.

I have never seen the circular motion application. Would you share the link? It sounds very interesting. Thanks.

Gesso Wash Technique

Found this fascinating technique at quietfiredesign.com by Wanda H. http://www.quietfiredesign.com/Galle...zWanda.htm#top

Add color to your cardstock any way you want (watercolor, reinkers, alcohol inks, etc.). Stamp image with archival ink on prepared background. Rub vaseline over the stamped image. Prepare a mixture of Gesso-Water in a spray bottle and spray over ATC. When Gesso Wash is dry, wipe the vaseline off. The vaseline acts as a resist to protect the original background from the Gesso Wash.

Left: Horse: OnyxXpressions. Cardstock prepared with Distress Ink background on regular cardstock.
Right: Lady: Hampton Arts. Cardstock prepared with alcohol inks on glossy cardstock.

I love Nancy/Wolfeyesone's ATC featuring a combination of Gesso Wash and the Vaseline Techniques. How cool is this?!

This is what happened with I combined Gesso with Pearl Ex and then used an embossing folder to create the image.

It was a lot of fun, but fair warning: carefully remove embossing folder particularly if the embossed image has lots of detail as this one has:
