Jerry's World's Greatest - White Acrylic Artist Gesso Primer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from World's Greatest Gesso is the best! Over the course of my 40 year career as a professional artist I have tried just about every brand of Gesso. I just bought two gallons of Jerry's World's Greatest Gesso to prime some large hardboard painting panels. I thought that it was going to be an economy gesso that would require many coats. Was I wrong! It is comparable to the finest gessos I have ever used with a dense white pigment load and brushes on smoothly. I diluted one gallon 50 % with water to apply it with a paint roller and was so surprised that it covered in one coat. Sands nicely and has just the right amount of tooth. It takes graphite drawings beautifully. This is my gesso from now on as it lives up to it's name, World's Greatest Gesso.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I haven't used too many types of gesso, but this one is nicer compared to one I used in the past which was more paste-like. This gesso is more of a soft butter consistency. The first container I bought arrived to my home damaged. Jerry's replaced it without a problem. It has very good coverage and goes on smoothly. I would recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Now that's a good 'white I am approaching fity years as a professional artist and have used a wide variety of gesso products. Jerry's World's Greatest provides excellant coverage and an solid, smooth ground for applying paint. One of my current projects involves eighteen 26" x 48" panels that will hang side-by-side in a public facility and consistency is a must. I am thouroughly pleased with this gesso's quality. The one drawback I recently encountered was the lid removal on the one gallon container. This was the first time I have experienced the problem and may simply be an anomaly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from really is worlds greatest Gesso is great. Thick enough to cover fully, but thin enough spread evenly. I was really impressed by the fact that it cost the same for a gallon of this as it does for a half gallon of some of the brand names. Five stars!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Greatest? Well- Very good. This is a very good quality gesso and an attractive price. It is a little thicker than my preference however I see that as an advantage it is easy to thin just a little [and would be much more difficult to thicken]. Good tooth and sands easily. Opening the pail the first time is difficult, it is very well sealed. Rip off the band around the bottom, then each of the wide tabs must be pulled out and upward to release their strong grip. This is best done with a pipe wrench, or a culinary tool made to do this, or any other tool that can reach over the edge and grip the lip then pulling it backwards. A screwdriver will not work and will be very frustrating. After each one is loosened then it is relatively easy to open. When done firmly tap the lid onto the pail after cleaning the lip and lid edge. If you keep the pail lip clean subsequent openings will not be very difficult.
