This was my first time using gesso, so I can't compare other brands but I was quite happy with this product! I added a lot of acrylic paint into my sketchbook and the paper handled it quite well due to the gesso!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Easy to use

I primed a canvas with an old photograph on it and was able to use it for a whole new project.

Only Gesso I use.
from Breese, Il
Liquitex Basics Acrylic Gesso does a great job at an economical price.
Nice, heavy bodied
from Mt Pleasant, TN
Really thick, only drawback is it's a bit gummy when dry. It's hard to sand flat, but otherwise a great deal if sanding isn't what you're doing.
I thought about making my own gesso for priming paper and canvas. However, after watching several/many videos of people making their own, it hardly seemed worth the effort -- especially if you're short on storage space and time. I've used Liquitex Gesso since grade school. A little goes a long way and it really bonds well with all kinds of surfaces. I trust this product.
I have used Liquitex Gesso for some time.

I use this product to cover over a painting I pratic on and it may take to coats but it works good to do the final art piece.

Liquitex Basics Acrylic Gesso - is GREAT!
from Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic
I had called before purchasing this product and was told that its consistency is same as in ink but to my surprised its NOT that this but has good body and very white color. Its perfect for preparing canvas or even wood panel for painting and it dries opaque. Its excellent for its price. I would order it again.
