Welcome to dickblick
Golden Gesso is a ready-to-use liquid ground 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.

Non traditional use of Gesso
As a sculptor I am always ordering products to use in their unintended use. I purchased the Black Gesso to cover over 4,000 leaves needed for an installation. I am happy with the coverage, one coat would be enoung but I am painting the leaves with 2 coats of gesso.

I like to paint on a black surface so after I apply the black gesso I can start painting and not have to apply black paint over a white gesso panel.
from Urbana, Ohio
Good ground for painting in either oil or acrylicThe gesso has great coverage and a wonderful smoothness to it.

This black gesso covers great in one coat and leaves a very nice smooth surface. With two coats it was even nicer. you can write on it with gel pens or metallic markers and they show up great or you can paint on it. It doesn't chip or flake off like some gessos I have used.

absolutely fantastic product.
from Tyler, TX
So far i have not found anything wrong with this product. I had to have two coats to completely cover my previously white canvas, which is an improvement from other gessos I've used, because I use the palette knife method to cover my canvas with gesso, unlike most who use large brushes. I am unsure if the effect is the same with brushes, but using the palette knife, the gesso goes A LONG WAY. I hardly used an ounce for both coats to solidly cover a canvas about 5'7" by 4'8". Each coat dried within 10 minutes. I am overall astonished and happy with the quality of this product.

Super smooth and really covers!
By The Flighty Artist

This is very smooth and I'm always surprised to see that one coat totally obscures anything beneath it. I love it for art journaling, because I can brush it on a page and then use things like my favorite Sakura gel pens on it easily.
