Nice, heavy bodied
from Mt Pleasant, TN
Really thick, only drawback is it's a bit gummy when dry. It's hard to sand flat, but otherwise a great deal if sanding isn't what you're doing.
I thought about making my own gesso for priming paper and canvas. However, after watching several/many videos of people making their own, it hardly seemed worth the effort -- especially if you're short on storage space and time. I've used Liquitex Gesso since grade school. A little goes a long way and it really bonds well with all kinds of surfaces. I trust this product.
I have used Liquitex Gesso for some time.

Liquitex Basics Acrylic Gesso - is GREAT!
from Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic
I had called before purchasing this product and was told that its consistency is same as in ink but to my surprised its NOT that this but has good body and very white color. Its perfect for preparing canvas or even wood panel for painting and it dries opaque. Its excellent for its price. I would order it again.
I would and have bought this product aga
from Iowa Park. Texas
I'm painting canvas and making rugsGood coverage
Good tooth, moderate coverage, smelly
from Malvern, PA
Liquitex white gesso is predictably average - not bad (it isn't too runny), not great (the coverage is only moderate), with one distinct disadvantage - the smell of walking into an unventilated house being painted. For the price, I'm willing to put up with this minor inconvenience.
Bot very opaque
By Dog and truck
from Boston, Ma
This gesso soes not give great coverage and is fairly see through when applied, despite its claims of being opaque. It takes several coats to be completely opaque and therefore is more expensive than other gessos. Not worth it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Just what I needed
from Dallas, TX
I have been using the same gesso for awhile, and the price is definitely better here than anywhere else I have looked.
