Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth and thick Excellent product. Thinner than some other gessos but it is opaque and easy to spread.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jerry's Acrylic Gesso This product serves my purposes well, at a good price. I used it to prepare stretched canvas for painting in acrylic - excellent for this purpose - and also as a medium with acrylic paint to tint the color and add volume to the paint. Excellent!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from GOOD GESSO BUT... LID CRACKED IN SHIPPING AND SPILLED! When I received my order, The inside of the box was stained with spilled Gesso, apparently whoever packed the box did not use enough padding or the box took a hard hit while in transit. When I got the gesso out I found that a bunch had spilled out from the under the lid. I cleaned it up of of the jar and sealed the lid and thought everything was OK until later on I discovered that the lid was actually cracked along the edge, which I did not see when I first opened the box. The Gesso Itself looks like a good product but Jerry's needs to use sturdier lids or pack their items better for shipping... It was disappointing when I opened the box and saw Gesso spilled all over the inside of the shipping box. Luckily it didn't get on any of the other items because at least the Gesso container was wrapped in a plastic shrink wrap material but still did not protect it from the damage it took in shipping. My assumption is if it was wrapped in shrink wrap then the spillage in shipping must be a known issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice primer and more! I use Jerry's gesso to prime my surfaces. I mix the last 2 coats with Golden's molding paste to give it a more absorbant surface. I also use it instead of white acrylic to block out areas of the painting to quiet down the surface

Perhaps I received a bad batch, but I find this product terrible. When I brush it on the canvas, it leaves all kinds of little chunks that I then have to spend all kinds of time trying to pick out before it dries. Has anyone else run into this issue?

Is this product translucent enough that I can paint it over my line drawing before I start painting?

Asked by: Lori B in NC
A thin coat of gesso should not fully obscure your line drawing. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

What do you use to SAND the gesso'd canvas surface?

Asked by: Dinkie
Sandpaper can be used to sand down a dry gessoed canvas.
