Comments about Blick Studio Gesso:
I purchased this in a store after running out of Blick's professional grade gesso. I love Blick's studio acrylics and was expecting the same quality. What I got was something the consistency of raw eggs whites with no tooth, even after being stirred thoroughly. Worse, I used it on a piece of reclaimed wood, and the results have been weird. Given, this isn't an artist's panel and I wasn't expecting perfection. But, I painted the front with the professional gesso and everything I've painted on that side looks as it should. On the back and sides, where I used this gesso, the glaze I used (Golden glaze with a little brown paint) turned bright orange and refused to dry in spots. Maybe I ended up with a bad batch? Its such a weird reaction though, I'm thinking the safe bet is to sand it off and start over.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This gesso is a solid two coat application gesso. The coverage is great and the tooth is perfect. I use it on cardboard, cereal box cardboard, fabric, and wood. I have always liked the results.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

horrible. will never buy again
By Cynthia Lee
from South Carolina
I ordered this because it was studio grade, I though it would be better than a cheaper student grade. It says it is opaque ... and it is not. It says it will cover in two coats ... it does not. It is very gummy and without any tooth at all. In fact, when I opened it, I thought that I had mistakenly ordered liquid matte medium .. it is that translucent and smooth.I will only order professional grade from now on.
