from New York
I love this gesso, which is specially designed for encaustic. It's very easy to apply; not too thick or too liquid. It works perfectly for flat surfaces, but also for 3-dimensional objects if you want to use the encaustic technique with them. I have nothing negative to say.
from Atlanta GA
Great texture, excellent coverage. Good value.

Does the job intended
By Chicken artist
from Orlando, FL
I am not sure what the ingredients are that make it different from the gesso for oils and acrylics, but it is very expensive in comparison. It goes on smooth and only required 2 coats.

I use the primer to prepare panels for encausti painting
from Vashon Island WA
I haven't used this product very much. But seem to be happy with it. Saves time from making your own, (which is cheaper). Several encausitic classes I have taken everyone does recommendthis product. Just wish it wasn't so pricey. Dick Blick gives some savings. They need to make it in different colours, red, black, would be nice......I tint mine with pigments.
from moreno valley ca
the product is great but both containers arrived in a leaking condition. The outer boxes did not have severe damage.

Must Have for an Encaustic Studio
By Multi Media Maven
from Fort Lauderdale, FL
I have found this encaustic gesso to be a must-have for my encaustic studio. I teach students in my studio and use one coat of this gesso to prep the student's MDF boards the day before class. I have found that inexpensive MDF boards can be finicky, so the MDF surface either sucks up too much wax on the first 2 wax priming coats or some board surfaces even repel the encaustic wax priming coats that we do in class. Using R&R's encaustic gesso ensures that every student gets a perfect outcome on their project every time!

Wonderful ground for Encaustics
By Peggy S
from Tucson, AZ
R&F products are supreme for encaustics. This gesso is the perfect ground for putting on birch or luan boards when doing encaustic artwork. I applied a thin layer in one direction and let it dry and then another layer perpendicular to the first later. I let that dry and then I am good to go with layers of encaustic medium and pigments.
