Dappen Dish / Dampen Dish

These small wide-mouthed glass containers with a relatively heavy base are ideal for holding gesso, ink or gouache.

Peter Thornton used a dampen dish to reconstitute prepared gesso in a gilding workshop that John attended. He put a piece of prepared gesso in one of these small shot glasses, added a drop of water, and got the gesso to the correct consistency. He then applied the gesso to his quill or pen from the dappen dish.
