Jerry's World's Greatest - White Acrylic Artist Gesso Primer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Gesso! I run an art school and purchase 90% of my supplies from Jerry's. I've purchased several jars of this Gesso and although I like the product, the lid has been cracked on three of my jars. Jerry's is great about replacing it. I was told they were no longer going to carry it because of this. It was still there when I went place an order. I gave it a shot and the lid was intact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best quality gesso out there for its price! I’ll never use another gesso. You cannot beat the quality of Jerry’s gesso for the price. I love it! Couldn’t have gotten through undergrad without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality, non-toxic acrylic gesso with long shelf life, and convenient packaging. Making and gessoing your own canvases is no longer a problem because Jerry's gesso comes in handy plastic pails and has a very long shelf life. Clean up is a breeze with acrylic gesso, and when dry this gesso becomes a very durable substrate for oil or acrylic paintings. And, it is easy to use for filling cracks and defects in older art work prior to repainting. Students today need to think about gessoing their own canvases. They will never be satisfied with big box, discount store supplies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great gesso i bought this to try another density of gesso. i have been using liquitex liquid gesso and i like it, but jerry's gesso gives me much more flexibility for creating texture in my paintings--i've been having fun using more texture from the very beginning of a piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product! Have been using this product since October of 2017. It was recommended to me by my Art instructor. It is simple to use...easy clean up! Brushes on easily...spreads quickly...dries quickly. The perfect product for prepping my canvases for acrylic painting! My paints spread easier using this product! Paint colors and bright and clear! No dust! The perfect product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gesso Gesso Gesso Pro - It is a large amount of Gesso for the price. It is very thick, so you have to water it down which gives you more Gesso. it only took 1/2 gallon of Gessoto cover a 6ft x 6ft canvas twice. After the Gesso dried it smoothed out creating a surface I did not need to sand. Con - It had little round pellets of dried or unmixed Gesso, that I had to pick off once canvas was dry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good gesso for the money I've used this gesso several times for painting large-scale backdrops where I needed the economy of coverage. It performs better than expected given its price. My biggest gripe is that it does not let down easily with water. It tends to be chalky and is tough to get residual solids/sediment fully mixed into a slurry to cover thinly. I'm sure it would be fine full strength, though.

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!

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.
