Works great! Love the texture it gives the canvas, i also was able to paint small stones with the gray gesso and the paint over with blue oil paint and it created a beautiful transparent pond that gives the illusion of crystal clear water and visible stones underneath the surface; just like the bob ross technique.
Rated by: Ted K. in North Port, FL
Works just as easy as Mr. Bob Ross said in his Show. Very easy, I have not found anything like it on the market today.
Rated by: Zaria B. in Portland, OR
this is a great medium. It dries really fast, which is really helpful when You're in that create mode.

The best Gesso product ever! The only problem is MisterArt didn't carry the White Gesso [only Black and Gray].
Rated by: Sharon B. in Grass Valley, CA
I have been very happy with Bob Ross products and feel this his gesso is everything it should be. I have only used it on a canvas for an oil painting, but it really is all I had expected.
