Prima Economy Acrylic Gesso is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product I first used prima economy gesso three years ago at one of my old schools in Monmouth County NJ, and to tell you the truth, not only is the gesso's texture and consistency very strong and durable for applications on canvas, but also wood, hard board, and metal. It has an very smooth finish when it dries, but also it's very affordable as well. I've also used the black gesso too. It's great for dark backgrounds for painting portraits and still life paintings!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best gesso on the market There's no other gesso that compares to Prima. It has the consistency of milk paint, so when applied to a surface laying flat, the gesso evens itself out and the brushstrokes disappear completely. This is THE gesso to use if you are trying to create a smooth, matte, eggshell-like surface. If you apply 5-6 coats and sand between each with a fine sandpaper, you will end up with a surface as smooth as paper, even when priming canvas or linen. Also, keep in mind, this gesso is pretty absorbent and not terribly flexible--probably better used on a surface that you plan on keeping flat (rather than rolling up). Thank god for Prima. If this product is ever discontinued, I'll have to find a recipe and make my own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from jsoard I've been painting on black for a while now. In the beginning, finding black gesso (or any black ground) was a challenge. So, I've lived to see good quality black gesso available in larger sizes... thank goodness. Initially the stuff was only available through 'hobbyist' supply sources and those are notoriously over-priced. This, on the other hand, is a professional quality, pure black that is consistent throughoutthe container. Life is good. It is more expensive than white, of course. I've tried tinting regular gesso and found myself spending quite a lot of money on black pigment. I'm glad those days are over.
