Comments about Art Boards Acrylic Panel Gesso:
I've adored this gesso since the first time I used it. It has a painting surface like no other gesso: soft, eggshell, smooth with just the right absorbency. For a person with an aversion to the finish (and the odor) of acrylic "universal" gesso, THIS acrylic gesso (made for use on panels only) is in a class by itself. I only wish the Art Board folks made an equivalent gesso for stretched canvas too.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Thick n' Creamy
First time using this product. I have a number of Luan scraps that I have trimmed to standard sizes (5x7, 8x10, 11x14) and wanted a good Gesso to coat them. Saw this was specifically for boards (rigid surfaces) and thought I'd try it. My initial reaction was - Niiiice. It's thick.... creamy.... and covers really nicely. Highly impressed with it. Paint sticks well - no coverage issues. I will use this for all my board surfaces from now on.
Art board gesso
By Peter the painter
I`ve tried Art board gesso mainly because I need an absorbent surface, at least more absorbent than the usual acrylic gessos.If a traditionnal gesso ( chalk and rabbitskin glue )is rated 10, in terms of absorbency, Art gesso board would be scaled around 5. Easily sandable, very concentrated, a good buy! I would recommend it!
Would buy again!

Probably my favorite gesso
from Canton, OH
This gesso caught my attention because their website said that it was absorbent, and thus could take watercolors...so I purchased it for experimentation and it does indeed take inks and watercolors pretty well...better than the Golden Absorbent Ground, actually. I haven't done much more than a sample painting as of yet, but my first impressions leave me very pleased. Even if I weren't buying this for the specific purpose of watercolor, I find the creamy consistency and easy coverage of this product to easily have become my favorite for gesso.

I use this product not as a base for painting but as a base coat for texturing and coloring art forms I create on the lathe. Great product to work with, handles well and time between application and drying allows more than ample time for me to achieve desired texture.
Best acrylic gesso on the market.
A bit pricey, but worth it, as it's the best acrylic primer for panels. Can be sanded to a perfectly smooth, hard surface. Great for priming panels for acrylic or oil. Easy clean up. Wish Blick's stocked larger sizes than 4 ounce cans - 4 ounces doesn't go that far. Blick's used to stock more Art Boards products at retail locations. Did they decide to market their own, inferior products, instead?
Like working on satin!

Pre applying this gesso makes my paints adhere and glide over the canvas!

This gesso is good quality; nice consistency and smooth. I use it on hardboard before painting.
