Can I add color to FolkArt Gesso to color and prime a surface as the same time?

Yes, acrylic paint such as FolkArt Acrylics or FolkArt Multi-Surface paints can be mixed with Gesso to slightly color the medium and then used to prepare or prime a surface.  This will give the surface a base tint prior to painting a basecoat of color.
