Our Artists' Gesso is an excellent medium-bodied acrylic ground.  It is formulated with the same high-grade Titanium Dioxide and quality polymers that are found in our Professional Grade Gesso but with lower viscosity.

Artists' Gesso has superior brightness and excellent covering properties that ensure no bleed through.  It produces a slightly toothed surface that can be sanded to an extra smooth finish for detailed work.

    I really like the texture and body of this gesso. I use it straight out of the container to build up layers in my work that can then be stained and sanded repeatedly. It is smooth and spreads easily with a pallet knife or brush without being too stiff. A bright white that takes color well. Thinning the gesso with a little water is no problem when a smooth finish is desired. I am happy with this product and will continue to buy it by the gallon.

    This gesso is so wonderful, I want to spread it on my morning toast! Just kidding. It is, however, the only gesso I will ever use as a ground for my paintings. I gesso both paper and/or canvas before painting, I like to put it on thick and messy so I have some texture to start with. Other brands just don't match up to Utrecht!
