Welcome to dickblick
Utrecht Artists' Acrylic Gesso is an excellent medium-bodied acrylic ground. It is formulated with the same high-grade titanium dioxide and quality polymers that are found in Utrecht Professional Gesso, but has a more fluid viscosity.
Offering superior brightness, excellent covering properties, and archival stability, it produces a slightly toothed surface that can be sanded to an extra smooth finish for detailed work.

Comments about Utrecht Artists' Acrylic Gesso:
You can purchase cheaper gesso's but they just won't give you this quality. It was recommended to me by another artist and he never steers me wrong!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Though I thought I was buying the pro grade, this is still a very nice gesso. If substituting for Utrecht's professional grade gesso, you may want an extra coat. Utrecht's gesso is the first gesso I've used that stops oil migration to the back from impassto oil painting.

Good value, good product.
from Oakridge, OR
Very dense, but mixes well with water and gel medium to thin.
from Albuquerque, NM
I purchased this brand of gesso for a workshop I was taking, as it was on the supplies list. I've used many different gessos in the past (including Golden and Liquitex). I was not expecting anything different with this.To my surprise, this gesso was so much more thick and creamy; not unlike modeling paste in it's consistency. Wow..I love it! It's spreadable and while can be "painted" on in a thin coat as with traditional gesso, it has the ability to stand firm when creating some raised areas/textures. I love it!!!!
Utrecht sells three different gessos

Studio,Artist, and Professional Utrecht gessos are excellent for working with acrylic paint when a wet surface is desirable.
By Bessie Boots the Painter

Not only does this product prepare a surface for covering, it also acts as a perfect replacement for white when painting with acrylics. It's like having a big can of titanium white.
Utrecht Artists' Gesso
I've tried many brands of gesso and recommend Utrecht Artists' Acrylic Gesso. Utrecht Artists' Acrylic Gesso has superb spreading and drying properties, leaving a superior surface to paint on.
