Utrecht Artists' Acrylic 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.

    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.

    I love this gesso . It is the best one I have ever used ! I love the texture and how well it spreads. It mixes with color so nicely and has a wonderful creamy goodness. I start to feel panicky if I think that I might be running low.
