My Review of World's Greatest Gesso

Originally submitted at Jerry's Artarama Art Supplies

This wonderful gesso provides incredible coverage and the highest level of brilliance of any Gesso on the market today. It also has extra flexibility so it won’t crack even in the most adverse conditions. Simply put, it’s the best!

Pros: Nonyellow, Matte, Glides Smoothly

Cons: Covers Well

Best Uses: Art, Artboard Primer

Describe Yourself: Artist

Primary use: Personal

Was this a gift?: No

I have tried different brands over the years, searching for a gesso that will not dry with a shine and take several coats to cover. Another gesso stipulation is to be as white as possible. Jerry's Greatest meets these demands: primes with a good white tooth that is matte.
