Great product. Flows easily. Drys quickly.
Rated by: Ruth c. in Susquehanna, PA
Just loved it, easy to work with. Did the job with ease. Cleans up nicely also.
Rated by: Tami D. in My Horeb, WI
Great product. I have used it as a base coat and also as a paint that was varnished later. It ended up darker then my black paint and was more affordable. I'll definitely be buying more.
Rated by: Marlene B. in Tontogany, OH
Wonderful consistency, flow, and coverage.The colors make a great undercoat for my backgrounds, saving on my acrylic paints. Would like to see larger bottles available sometime in the future?
Rated by: Tomomi N. in Phildelphia, PA
It covers canvas well without many layering. Also, it makes canvas surface great. I could noticed when I used it fot the first time. But the bottle size is so small that it runs out very fast. I need larger size bottle.

Rated by: Wayne G. in Mapleton, MN
I have used black gesso as a base surface to paint from. It has a flat finish that is much different that a regular black. I recommend it.
Rated by: Monica M. in Dallas, TX
Great on canvas, wood and metal. Superior coverage and easy to work with. Liquitex never disappoints! (I'm using the black gesso.)
Rated by: J D. in Sleepy Hollow, NY
Works very well on metal and plastic as a primer for acrylic paints. Very easy to work with, excellent coverage, good tooth, easy cleanup.
Rated by: Heidi F. in Shawano, WI
It is about time there is a product like this. I use to use regualr paint to get that old world glow like the great artist did,but with this product it is easier and cheaper and covers well.
