Product Description

DANIEL SMITH World's Best Acrylic Gesso

Daniel Smith Acrylic Gesso is heavily pigmented, thick and brushable. Use two coats to cover instead of three! When you paint with oils or acrylics, using high-quality materials to prepare your canvas or board is as important as the paint you choose. Acrylic gesso has proven to be more flexible than any of the oil grounds. It does not contain oil acids which tend to deteriorate cotton or linen canvas fibers, so an undersizing, such as rabbit skin glue, is not necessary and should not be used.

Daniel Smith Acrylic Gesso has been developed in the following shades:

  • White
  • Black
  • Stone Gray
  • Buff Titanium
  • Venetian Red and
  • Gold
  • Transparent

Recommended as painting grounds for acrylics, oils and alkyds, Daniel Smith Acrylic Gesso is more highly pigmented than most and requires only two coats for adequate coverage, instead of three. The very high grade acrylic emulsion we use in our gesso provides optimal flexibility and durability. Acrylic gesso cleans up with water.

How would you describe the quality of this product?
I love this Gesso. I never have to worry about the consistency. Absolutely flawless.
Performance
How did this product perform compared to your expectations?
With other Gesso that I have tried you always end up with a really raw and sandpaper like surface. Not with this one, even after the first layer is on it is still smooth.I will not paint on any other surface.
Use
What material did you apply this gesso to?
I have applied this to a wide range of materials. From stretched canvas to boards even to paper mache.Which it worked wonders on the paper mache, gave it a rich surface to paint on
Value
Was this product true to its value?
the real value of this product is that it is not wasteful. I have bought others in the past for a lower price. I had to use twice as much and spent more time in sanding and cleaning. With this Gesso I can spent a few hours doing lots of large canvas then the next day they are ready. To me that is the most value my time. Also in the grand picture you get a lot for a reasonable price to.The gallon is always the way to go.
