This white, acrylic based primer can be used as the ground for almost any type of paint. It can be used on a variety of surfaces, any that will readily accept paint, and it dries within minutes to a brilliant, non-yellowing, non-cracking white. Liquitex Acrylic Gesso can be mixed with acrylic colors to provide a toned ground. It can also be thinned with water. Liquitex Acrylic Gesso comes in a variety of jar sizes, from 4 oz. to 1 gal.

This is a little thinner than some gesso I have used in the past, but overall the application is smooth and clean.

I use white gesso for base coats on customized model horses. It was recommended by the book I refer to and mixes very well with white acrylics to form a smooth coat.

Excellent Gesso, with enough body and is creamy, with good coverage.

I bought this as an experiment - looking for an alternative to Krylon or other canned primers. I thinned it about a 2:1 ratio with Liquitex airbrush medium, and primed miniatures using an airbrush. After practice to find the right technique, I found it provides a strong and durable cover yet shrunk to the minute details of the miniature without obscuring them. In another experiment, even after sanding, it provided a hard surface with ample "tooth". MisterArt again provided excellent service at rock-bottom prices!

This is my favorite, all purpose, gesso. I use it on canvas, rock, slate, and on whatever else I need to give a base cover. It covers great. So easy to use.

I used this to prime surfaces for paintings in art school and haven't used anything but. It's the best I've found so far.

This is the same brand the Art instructors purcase for class, and recomend for student use. If they think it is the best , then that's good enough for me!

I have used cheap gesso, and the paint does not behave the same on top. This gesso provides a better painting surface. Surprisingly, it makes a significant difference.

This gesso is my favorite!! Spreading it over the canvas is such pleasure, and it mixes great with colored paints if you want to achieve a different look. MisterArt.com's service was excellent, too!
