Sanding acrylic primer

Updated over a week ago

Yes, you can sand acrylic primer and acrylic gesso primer to get a smooth painting surface. Some primers are more sandable than others. Golden's Sandable Hard Gesso has a higher proportion of calcium carbonate and titanium dioxide so it's easier to sand than most other primers.
