Rated 4 out of 5 by from I did not recieve a Prima brand product... I received a no named brand of gesso in a plastic jug instead of a Prima product; outside of that once I gave it a good shake she applied perfectly and gave me the coverage I was looking. I am pleased and would order this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it. I am a professional artist. I've recently been working with oil and cold wax on wood panels which I purchase unprimed from Jerrys. I prime the boards with either white or black gesso. Both go on smoothly and work very well. I sometimes tint the white gesso with acrylics.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very watery The gesso I received looks nothing like the prima photo. I was surprised to receive a pourable jug vs a bucket (usually good quality gesso is too thick to pour). I was disappointed when I opened it and used it the first time. It is very watery, thin and will require a lot of coats. I am not sure if I received the wrong product (it does not say prima, anywhere on the bottle), or the picture/description used online were outdated/inaccurate. Either way very disappointed. Would not recommend.

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 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.
