Overall Experience

Was this review helpful?

Quality How would you describe the quality of this product? Have tried numerous gessos and was always disappointed. One day I googled for the "best gesso in the world." This came up. Yeah, right. So I tried it. Wonderful. Even texture, consistent from top to the bottom of can. The gesso has a particularly good "grabbing" surface for oils yet oil paints easily glide across surface and blend well. I mostly use white, but the metallic gold gesso is fun for a change and I just tried the Venetian Red for a wonderfully dramatic look. The Venetian Red gave an Old World feeling to my oil painting. Performance How did this product perform compared to your expectations? greatly exceeded Use What material did you apply this gesso to? untempered hardboard Value Was this product true to its value? yes Overall Experience What was your overall experience with this product? great!
