    I never write product reviews, this will be my first. I've tried Artarama's, Liquitex, and Lascaux gesso's and by far this is the best gesso I have used to date. It is much easier to sand to a very smooth surface, is buttery smooth, and able to be diluted for ease of application. I mainly use acrylic paints and Gold Leaf on my wooden panels, and am very grateful I tried this premium product. I would highly recommend this to anyone who uses gesso.

    This is amazing and fun to work with, layering, sanding and layering again ...you can almost get a glass like finish if you want one. I am really impressed with this product. OH, and if you have an old painting that you want to paint OVER, GO for it using THIS! If you add a little water first and then subsequent layers get thicker, wow, amazing what you can do. Like I said...fun stuff. Worth the investment. Since I started OUT using liquid guess that is WHY I am so thrilled with this.

    I have a large number of Dick Blick's canvas boards. These boards have a good tooth on the surface but the canvas quality and the gesso is minimum. Therefore I give 2 coats of very thin Utrecht's Prof. Gesso and it does the job. Because of the thin coats of gesso the original tooth is not covered and provides the surface I need. Since i do impressionism the surface needs to have some tooth. However, when i use this gesso on wood panels (which is not preprimed) the surface is becomes smooth and seems to have no tooth after the application of this gesso. If you want a smooth surface this is a good gesso. The coverage is good and it is bright white.
