All panels are not prepared with a varnish, ground, or finish of any kind so the artist has a choice in the development of its preparation. Priming procedures are unique to the individual artists goals and process. Some artists apply acrylic grounds, some apply more traditional sizing gesso recipes, still others use an oil or alkyd ground, etc.
As our panels are raw wood, initial thinned or watery applications as a first layer run greater risks of warping or damaging the surface of the panel as water would on any unfinished wood surface.
In addition, over-diluting this initial coat often leads to poor adhesion and a weaker ground layer. If thin applications are desired for a smoother surface, it is up to the artist to prepare the panel first with a proper sizing or sealing/isolation coat before applying grounds that have a higher aqueous content.
