This gesso is made from the highest quality acrylic resin. It has a superior level of pigmentation to give maximum covering power, so one coat is usually enough. However we recommend using two coats for unprimed canvases when used with oil colour.
It is fast drying and opaque and dries to give an excellent level of tooth and a balanced absorbency. It dries to a non-yellowing, flexible ground suitable for acrylic, oil and alkyd painting.
It can be used straight from the pot and dilution is not recommended.
I use this all the time now as it brushes out much better than the other brands that I have tried, and more economical too.It has very good opacity, dries fairly quickly in medium layers, and doesn't have much of an odour. David Molloy (Rossendale,, United Kingdom) on 13 Nov 2012
Only have one issue, being a complete novice, there was no guidance on how to use the product properly. Helen Porter (Luton, United Kingdom) on 23 May 2012
A good all-round primer that works well on most surfaces. I have used it successfully as a base for acrylics on watercolour paper, canvas and MDF board. Derek Butler (Winchester, United Kingdom) on 13 Mar 2013
