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.

Simply the best
Comments about Golden Acrylic Gesso:
I am painting on a solid fiberglass surface. I used Golden Acrylic Gesso and GAC 200 in a 3:1 ratio. The gesso combo surprisingly went on like silk and was the best experience I've ever had with gesso.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Used as a ground for oil paintings and cannot use anything else because it is the best!
Love this product
from Winterport maine
So far we have used this product to prime some vintage window frames in order to paint both the frames and the glass. It worked really well for this purpose.

Great products, easy to use website, and fast delivery. Another plus - if you have a problem with a delivery, Blick is swift in responding!
Really easy to use , the smooth finish and bright white is great.

Cover me up!
By Salty Cat
SO maybe I am a GESSO snob, but this is the only Gesso I prefer. It is thick and covers well. I use it for both oil and acrylic prep.

AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!
from Gurnee, IL
I ordered a boxful of items from Dick Blick - it arrived quickly, but upon opening the box the Gesso - had exploded! I took pictures and called customer service, without even needing to see the pictures they sent me a replacement jar of Gesso and even asked if anything else was damaged or unsalvageable. My new jar of Gesso arrived in 2 days. NOW THAT IS CUSTOMER SERVICE!!
Best white gesso I have used
from Murphy nc
I only need one coat of this gesso to cover over something I am unhappy with.. And I have tried them all. In the long run it is the best value...
By Top Tier
from Jackson, Wy.
Good foundation for "important" work! Super white, good hide. Works great on everything I've had to prime. Canvas, wood, gypsum, paper, textile, brick, stone, styrofoam, MDF, etc. A product you can trust.
