Our own exclusive artists' grade gesso offers good opacity, tooth, adhesion, and water-resistance at an economical Blick price.
Apply it to raw canvas, wood, hardboard, paper, and other porous surfaces as an excellent preparatory ground for oil or acrylic painting. The 100% pure acrylic polymer formula has a rich, smooth viscosity that is easy to spread and covers in one to two coats.
White Gesso features a high percentage of titanium dioxide that assures a brilliant white, non-yellowing ground. It may be tinted to any shade you desire using acrylic colors. Black Gesso provides an excellent ground for artwork with deep color palettes.
Non-toxic and lead free, Blick Artists' Acrylic Gesso dries to a flat, flexible film and cleans up with soap and water.

cracking like crazy
from Philadelphia, PA
Comments about Blick Artists' Acrylic Gesso:
I am really disappointed that this gesso is cracking- you must thin it liberally with water. I usually use the Blick Professional grade straight from the jar with no cracking, but this gesso is much more brittle. Although I put multiple coats that are thinned, it still cracked. I will try thinning even more. Very unforgiving gesso, will not buy again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I Like Blick's Acrylic Gesso
from Delhi, NY
Blick's gesso is definitely thicker and has slightly more texture than the similarly priced gesso I'd been buying in the box stores. I can't claim to have tried more than a couple of brands, but it is the best I've tried so far.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
used it for the first time yesterday. nice and buttery. coverage is good.
I thin the gesso a bit and use 2 coats, lightly sand
Love this Gesso. Much better than other Gesso products.
from Jackson, Michigan
This Gesso covers well and blends with other colors. My go to Gesso.
Blicks Artist's Acrylic Gesso
from Fergus Falls, MN
This gesso has great coverage, it's has a nice consistency, I always use this gesso, I've tried a lot of others, this is what I have found to work best for me.
Will definitely use again
I use to prime floorcloth canvas and it works better than other brands, as it does not buckle the canvas a lot when dry.
Good Quality Excellent Price

I've used this product a lot as an artist. Compared to other high end brands, it is extremely comparable. I will definitely order again
I have also used this product for years!!
I have been purchasing Dick Blick acrylic gesso for many years. It is exactly the quality I wanted. I remember purchasing this gesso when I was in college making my own frames. GREAT PRODUCT!!!
