Welcome to dickblick
Golden Gessos are ready-to-use liquid grounds formulated for the use of acrylics on any commonly used painting surface. They are flexible and can be applied in thin layers to conform to a variety of textured surfaces without cracking. Gesso provides a "tooth" to the support that promotes the adhesion of the paint system.
Modify Golden Gesso by mixing it with a variety of mediums. Spray it, or apply it with brush, roller, or trowel. At least three layers of gesso are needed for oil painting over acrylic gesso.

Comments about Golden Acrylic Gesso:
I mount my watercolor paper onto stretched canvas, and I like to gesso it with Golden Acrylic Gesso. Golden is a company that I swear by when it comes to acrylics. The Richeson stretcher bars, however, I took a chance on ordering, and they blew the previous make of stretcher bars that I used away. Very well made, tight, and solid. The delivery was very prompt as well. I didn't need it in a rush, but I think it only took about three days to arrive. I still like going into the brick and mortar Blick store to buy certain things, but I'm more inclined to order online for these items that aren't as easy to carry home.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The best gesso, hands down. I am priming Aluminum composite boards and it works great. 4 coats in different directions makes a great painting surface.

I use Blick's Golden's Gesso to paint bones for my Sculpture before I put on a final coat of paint( a mixture of Blick's Golden's matte gel and acrylic paint (titan buff) The gesso covers all of the imperfections and colors natural to the bones and makes the final mixture coat glide on.

best idiot proof gesso on the market
from Roswell, NM
this gesso is the perfect weight. 3- 4 light coats and you get a slightly shiny bright white canvas with no clogging of the canvas "tooth"- especially if you alternate vertically stroked coats with horizontal ones.If you're looking for an opaque, super matte(think flashe but thicker and more opaque, especially the colors), highly pigmented white or colored gesso, I would also recommend Holbein colored gesso line
I would buy this product again
from Mid Coast Maine
I have always used Golden Gesso. I buy a gallon at a time and Blick has the best price and I didn't have to pay for shipping.It was $14.00 cheaper than buying it in a store.

Great coverage and texture, easy to use. Canvas absorbs less paint after use

I took a class with oil pencils and learned to use this first, made a big difference. But then I found in boix store much cheaper. I will use both before I decide if yours is worth buying again. But satisfied.
Golden is always reliable
