Welcome to dickblick
Tri-Art’s 100% Acrylic Gesso has superior covering power and flexibility. It dries to a matte white finish which can be easily sanded to provide a smoother ground. To create a more textured ground, combine it with Tri-Art Modeling Paste until the desired effect is achieved.
Applied directly from the jar or thinned with polymer medium or water, Tri-Art Gesso will seal all semi-absorbent surfaces, while creating a neutral painting surface. For maximum performance, apply three to four coats of Gesso to the ground.
Do not apply acrylic gesso to oily or greasy surfaces. Both acrylic and oil paints will adhere to the dry gesso film. When using an acrylic gesso with oil-based or alkyd paints, be extra careful that the surface is dry and fully cured.

Comments about Tri-Art Finest Acrylic White Gesso:
It goes on really nice , but it dries really rough. After three thick coats of this gesso it looked like only 1 thin coat of any other gesso. I will never buy this product again
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

For longevity it's best to keep things simple and TriArt's 100% acrylic ground does that since it doesn't have fillers. I really like the consistency of it since it will self level better than others I've tried, which helps if you are trying to get a smooth surface or one free of brush strokes. It also dries harder than others I've used which makes it sand a little better. With this "gesso" I only need to sand the top coat to get a reasonably smooth surface.
Tri-Art mediums have been formulated to provide artists with an endless range of textures, effects, and finishes. Tri-Art Polymer Mediums have a similar consistency to Tri-Art Liquid Acrylic paint - the ideal medium for extending color and creating rich glazes. Tri-Art Modeling paste provides a high relief textured ground that can even be sanded or carved! Tri-Art Gessos are smooth, flexible, sand-able and absorbent. Tri-Art Sludge Gesso is the most economical and ecological gesso while providing an opaque and flexible ground. Tri-Art Top Coat Hard is designed as a non-removable final coat for rigid supports. It dries glass clear to a tough, scratch resistant, glossy finish.
