Krylon Gesso Spray
By The Princess of Alexandra
from Henrico, VA
I use the gesso spray to cover my masonite boards for working with goauche paints. I spray on 4 coats to get a really hard surface. Three coats would suffice but I also use mixed media sometimes and want the extra strength. I love the consistent texture and even coating that I get. It never spurts. It never bubbles or drips. I sometimes sand the board after doing a painting and isolate a portion to re-gesso to finish the picture and that works beautifully. A great product.

The spray gesso did not spray evenly, it sputtered and made large droplets.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Best way to put on a ground
from Long Island, NY
Easier to use than paint on gesso. Leaves a fantastically smooth Finish! No sanding required. I wish I had known about this product Before.
This is the perfect product for what I need.

I make miniature Christmas trees. I use the white Gesso to spray my green trees white. Gesso covers the green to make a beautiful white tree.

Horray for Spray Gesso
from Boca Raton, FL
I needed a spray on gesso so I could paint on paper. I use acrylics and I needed to paint on paper that wasn't too heavy ( it's for illustration so I wanted a nice smooth finish). This one did just what I thought it would, went on smooth, I painted on the paper easily.

I was priming masonite with this Krylon spray gesso for oil painting. It smells horrible, long after it's dry too. It gets on everything in sight, you need to wear full plastic suit, mask and cover everything around you or it'll just make an incredible mess. It got on my trigger finger and burned! Total waste of my money and time, not to mention health risks.

Great. Easiest to use gesso.
from Witter Springs
This was the easiet to use gesso. I used it on a gourd and will continue to use this form of gesso in the future. The entire gourd club was impressed. On the not so good side is the fact it is virtually unobtainable anywhere in my area. Had to go online which fortunately was quick albeit it incurs shipping charges.

this product is great
from Rhode Island
I use this product as a final prep for oil painting surfaces . With pre- primed canvas or board , to make sure there are no contaminents (oils @ silicones)from assembly line packing on painting surface before starting piece . This product won't seal the oils , but it lets you know that the media is no good before you try to use it . In the case of no oils on media , you wind up with a smoother more durable surface to paint on. Only drawback to product is that spray tips are prone to clogging . Usually can be cleared with small safty pin inserted into tip firmly . Test on another surface before resuming use in case of drips .
