Thick n' Creamy
Comments about Art Boards Acrylic Panel Gesso:
First time using this product. I have a number of Luan scraps that I have trimmed to standard sizes (5x7, 8x10, 11x14) and wanted a good Gesso to coat them. Saw this was specifically for boards (rigid surfaces) and thought I'd try it. My initial reaction was - Niiiice. It's thick.... creamy.... and covers really nicely. Highly impressed with it. Paint sticks well - no coverage issues. I will use this for all my board surfaces from now on.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Art board gesso
By Peter the Painter
I`ve tried Art board gesso mainly because I need an absorbent surface, at least more absorbent than the usual acrylic gessos.If a traditionnal gesso ( chalk and rabbitskin glue )is rated 10, in terms of absorbency, Art gesso board would be scaled around 5. Easily sandable, very concentrated, a good buy! I would recommend it!
Would buy again!

Good solid product! Fast shipment. Very well packed. Would buy again!
Probably my favorite gesso
from Canton, OH
This gesso caught my attention because their website said that it was absorbent, and thus could take watercolors...so I purchased it for experimentation and it does indeed take inks and watercolors pretty well...better than the Golden Absorbent Ground, actually. I haven't done much more than a sample painting as of yet, but my first impressions leave me very pleased. Even if I weren't buying this for the specific purpose of watercolor, I find the creamy consistency and easy coverage of this product to easily have become my favorite for gesso.
from Pt. Jefferson, NY
I use this product not as a base for painting but as a base coat for texturing and coloring art forms I create on the lathe. Great product to work with, handles well and time between application and drying allows more than ample time for me to achieve desired texture.
Best acrylic gesso on the market.
A bit pricey, but worth it, as it's the best acrylic primer for panels. Can be sanded to a perfectly smooth, hard surface. Great for priming panels for acrylic or oil. Easy clean up. Wish Blick's stocked larger sizes than 4 ounce cans - 4 ounces doesn't go that far. Blick's used to stock more Art Boards products at retail locations. Did they decide to market their own, inferior products, instead?
Like working on satin!

Pre applying this gesso makes my paints adhere and glide over the canvas!

This gesso is good quality; nice consistency and smooth. I use it on hardboard before painting.

Acrylic Panel Gesso 32 oz
By Ann the Artist
The 32-ounce container arrived from Blick only half-filled with gesso. The container was packed well, and the container did not leak during shipment. I called the manufacturer (not Blick), and after a 10-minute conversation, I was told that I would be receiving a replacement jar.I went ahead and used a portion of the half-filled container on a masonite board. It was the consistency of globby, half-dried house paint, not the thick, paste-like substance that I have used in the past. I did receive a jar from the manufacturer. It was a 16-ounce container to make up for the missing product from the initial, half-filled container that arrived from Blick. What would have been nice was if the manufacturer had sent a 32-ounce replacement container especially since the product in the half-filled container turned out to be inadequate. I have not re-contacted the manufacturer concerning the poor quality substance within the half-filled container.I plan on ordering a different product in lieu of this one. This one lacks quality control.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
