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.

Good product, but not best there is

The product is good for what it is, which is a studio gesso. The price is great and works nicely for students who don't have a lot of money.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Cheaper prices doesn't always mean lesser products!
I use this product as primer on thick paper or on boards and then use india ink, pastels, and charcoal on it. It worked great on paper and made a glossy textured surface that made my charcoal look awesome! This particular gesso doesn't smell very strong, so it's safe to use inside the house. It spreads evenly and easily. I spread it with a sponge brush or a thick house painting brush.

I paint mostly on paper. I gesso the paper with this product. It works well, all I need is one coat.Ted

I am exceptionally satisfied
from Pocatello, ID
I stretch canvas for paintings on a regular basis so I use a lot of gesso. I love the fact that this product is comparable to other gesso's that are 3 times the price. I haven't had a problem with this product to date.

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.
from La Verne, CA
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.
