    Awesome

    Love this Gesso Clear by Art Basics from Prima. It is not gritty. I do bible art journaling, so I work on very thin paper. I am able to apply 2 coats of this product on my paper and have amazing results. This is my go to clear gesso when working with very thin paper!

  • Great for page preparation

    I am new to Bible journaling and after watching, some great people on YouTube, I learned this item is wonderful for prepping your Bible pages to prevent bleeding through to the back of the page. I didn't want a huge jar of this, and this is just the right size. It works well and is worth the price. I would recommend it to everyone.

  • Yes to Gesso!

    I purchased this gesso for my Bible art. The previous brand I had used was too gritty. Prima's gesso is silky smooth, drys fast and takes only a little to do the job. I'm having a ball using it. I can't believe I waited so long to switch to Prima Art Basics clear gesso.

    It works

    Purchased for Bible journaling. Little to no bleed through. Pencil erases. Dries quickly. Have used colored pencils, watercolor pencils, watercolors and Copic markers. All did very well.

    How is Gesso work?   By: User (15-Nov-15) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • Gesso adds tooth (grip) to your paper so your mists and paints will sit on top of the paper rather than sinking in. This gives you more control as you can blot up any mistakes. I like using clear gesso to coat my pages before adding media so I know I won't spoil a background I've spent lots of time on. By: Jax204 (18-Nov-15) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you!
