Welcome to dickblick
Utrecht Studio Series Gesso is an economical acrylic ground that's great for high-volume use. It's a light-bodied gesso that provides a slightly toothed surface, which can be sanded to a smooth finish if desired.
Use it as a preparatory ground for oils, acrylics, alkyds, and water mixable oils on a variety of substrates including canvas, paper, board, wood, plaster, and stone. Apply three coats to achieve maximum opaque coverage and archival stability.

Very nice gesso for the price. If you're looking for a smooth surface to paint on, this gesso sands very well (wear a dust mask).It's a bit brittle if applied thick and it could be a little more pigmented, but otherwise, this is the gesso I buy when I need a gallon to blow through.

Great product great service
Works real good. Pleased with my service
Great product at a low cost!
Application is smooth and consistent. Clean up is a breeze. Consistency is ideal. Not much else to say about a basic but good gesso.My first gesso product so I am not sure if they are suppose to have a plastic seal under the lid but it would have been a nice touch as a small amount of gesso leaked out into the thread of the jar. Not a deal breaker just a note of concern. It will not stop me from buying more in the near future rather than some cheap knock-off brand.

Used it for all the canvas' I've been stretching so I can paint them and it works great. Goes on smooth and has a great texture when dry. Easy to clean off my brushes and clothes too. To me its perfect, a very good deal. I'm very happy with it and would definitely buy this again.
Gesso with Kids
By Courtney the Teacher

I love the Gesso! It works great for my high school level painting class. I wish that the lid would go on a little tighter, since I lost a gallon at the beginning of the year when a student didn't put the lid on all of the way! As long as the edges stay nice and clean it works great! The actual gesso is great too!
Great product for the price

Love it for thick applications! Great value and awesome coverage on panel and on canvas.
Thinner than most, but still great stuff.

Just wanted to put in a few words about the Utrecht Studio Series Gesso. This is not cheap-O gesso. While it's not as thick as thoze slightly more expensive, due I am told to less pigment, it does not mean this is an inferior gesso. I had 1/5 gallon leftover of the better gesso, got this one and mixed it all together, and the stuff is great. So if you like a thinner gesso for whatever purposes, don't hesitate thinking this one is cheap quality - NOT SO!
Simple product at the right price

I was just looking for something within my price range and would be usable for acrylic paints. The product seems a lot smoother than one I had before so I'm looking forward to trying it out and in my testing, I like it because it glides on smoothly and looks like it will make it easier for my portraits to have a natural look.

Very thick. Coats in one application. We used it as a primer over paper mache.
