Great Product Great Price
So I purchased this after watching YouTube videos trying to figure out how to make my own gesso! I love love love this product and the gesso I can make with it. Some videos called for using baby powder instead of marble dust. I have asthma and the baby powder just seemed to float in the air while pouring it and I felt Ike I was inhaling it and it was causing respiratory problems (should have worn a mask). This product is heavier and the dust "settles" better (again, probably should wear a mask but I didn't).
A little goes along way. I love the stuff
I mix a teaspoon of the stuff with each color on my palette along with stand oil to create great texture
great great stuff
use to make my own gesso. Great economically.

I always love shopping at Dick Blick for marble dust!
from Odessa, TX
Fredrix powdered marble dust is fantastic for making my clear gesso and gives me more flexibility with mixed media art! It has more uses too. Thanks!
Not sure if anything else is better
I used this to make traditional gesso with rabbit skin glue and primed over 20 birch panels without issue. I don't know if there is a better marble dust product but no reason not to try Fredrix.
Just what I needed
from Inverness Florida
I used this product to make Gesso. It is clean, fine, light. Worked out prefect for my project! Make sure you use in a well ventilated area or out doors if you using this with mixing as you might think it kicks up a ton of dust.

This is the absolute best value for the quality you can find on Marble Dust, there really isn't anything better on the market. The particle size is very consistent and similar to a fine grades of whiting, very very tiny particles with no clumps.It's useful for more things than I have had the chance to try it with, but just a few uses include polishing objects, cleaning up spills, making paint mediums, cleaning the palette, making grounds and gesso, drying sweaty hands, as a chalk for brush handling (gives them a nice slide on the fingers and in the palm), reducing glare on especially shiny surfaces, and WAY more. It's like the red hot sauce of art supplies, I use it on everything.For the price you cannot get better, buy it while it's inexpensive because one day they are likely to charge more for such a crazy amazing product.
