Great for drawing
By Dr. Worm
Comments about Blick Master Gesso:
This gesso is a bit different than most other gessoes. It can be a bit of pain to work with and the gesso does clog up sand paper pretty quickly. What I do really like about it is how hard the gesso sets up. The surface is fantastic to draw on once it is lightly sanded. The surface can take a heck of a beating which works very well for me.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Whenever placing a large order at Blick's and freight is prepaid, it is advantageous to stock up on these heavy gallon sized items. I have been disappointed with bargain gesso and find it not worth my time and energy to save a few dollars.

I have been using this gesso for years now. It seals great and leaves an excellent painting surface. Achieve an even smoother surface by lightly sanding between coats.
Good quality gesso.
from New Mexico
I not only use gesso for canvas, but also painting fabric & furniture. Gesso for me anyways is totally diverse. This particular yes so has a thick rich texture that spreads easily. Will purchase again.

This gesso gives a really full coverage result. It's thick and covers and flows really nicely. It's GREAT value for the quantity !

Not as good as Liquitex Professional Gesso.
By Twinbrother Fine Art
from Los Angeles, CA
I wanted to try this and compare it to Liquitex Professional gesso. Reviews seemed pretty good and so was the price point. Well, it's a disappointment. The gesso doesn't sand as well as Liquitex or thin as well either. Also, it doesn't lay down as well with either a brush or a roller. I can get a very smooth canvas with the Liquitex Professional gesso when I thin it down. The Dick Blick Master gesso breaks down and still doesn't lay down smooth. When I try sanding it, doesn't give me the smooth finish I get with the Liquitex brand. Quite a disappointment. I'm sticking with Liquitex.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great product for the price.
from Portland OR
I am very pleased with the quality of the gesso, I had my doubts at first but thought I would try it, considering the price. I would recommend this product.
Best gesso for the money
By Katie Jeanne
Blick Master gesso is the only gesso I buy. I purchased one every time I place an order, and will continue in the future. I've tried other brands, but this is the best, hands down.
