Not sure if anything else is better
I used this to make traditional gesso with rabbit skin glue and primed over 20 birch panels without issue. I don't know if there is a better marble dust product but no reason not to try Fredrix.
Just what I needed
from Inverness Florida
I used this product to make Gesso. It is clean, fine, light. Worked out prefect for my project! Make sure you use in a well ventilated area or out doors if you using this with mixing as you might think it kicks up a ton of dust.

This is the absolute best value for the quality you can find on Marble Dust, there really isn't anything better on the market. The particle size is very consistent and similar to a fine grades of whiting, very very tiny particles with no clumps.It's useful for more things than I have had the chance to try it with, but just a few uses include polishing objects, cleaning up spills, making paint mediums, cleaning the palette, making grounds and gesso, drying sweaty hands, as a chalk for brush handling (gives them a nice slide on the fingers and in the palm), reducing glare on especially shiny surfaces, and WAY more. It's like the red hot sauce of art supplies, I use it on everything.For the price you cannot get better, buy it while it's inexpensive because one day they are likely to charge more for such a crazy amazing product.
I will buy this product again, nice clean dust

It blended quite nicely into the recipe for a gesso I was working on. For the price it fulfilled all my expectations and requirements. I am extremely satisfied with the complete ease and process of placing this order and receipt of order in a timely manner. Will definitely be ordering this product again when making future purchases. Thank You!

This is great for making my own gessos. I was skeptical at first, but this is wonderful and will save me a lot of time and money. I will purchase this again in the future.

I used Fredrix Powdered Marble Dust to make some DIY clear, and black gesso. Both turned out great! The best way, (that worked for me), to mix this product with liquids is to add a little of the liquid used to a little of the powder stirring in between to incorporate, this will prevent clumps. I used a whisk and a hand mixer. Other than that, I would, with any powder product, wear a mask and gloves.
Great just what I needed.
