I can't believe all the negative reviews. Thick, really? Who would want watered-down gesso? I thin it down by about 20% by pouring out enough to fill 3/4 of a 1 pint wide mouth mason jar, then adding water and leaving a small amount of air in the neck. I make 3 jars and seal with cling film and blue masking tape. I add 1/4 cup hot water to the 64 oz container and shake well. I use this first. I usually coat 8 24"x24" canvas panels so there's not much left over; that said, I've had no problems using gesso stored over 6 months. It's fabulously thick and creamy. A wonderful product and a good price.

Can't say how "good" this stuff is for the long term, but using it was difficult. Be prepared with a palette or putty knife and a container to water it down in. You'll need it. A brush won't be enough. I couldn't get the lumps out without a knife. Also, someone tell Amazon that this stuff is not a toy. That is, unless it's meant to be a prank.

This gesso started out thick, but worked well the first time I used it. A few months later it had dried up to the point of being unusable. I had closed the container and stored it properly, but it still dried up. Would not buy this again.

This product is so thick, I can't even get it out of the bottle! Not sure if it's dried up or what's wrong with it, but not usable.

I know nothing about painting. My twin painted paw imprints for my deceased baby (17 yr old cat), and she ALWAYS uses Gesso to prep her canvas or clay or whatever she needs to paint on or over. She swears by this stuff, and asked SPECIFICALLY for it. She's a happy camper and the clay paw imprints came out beautifully, so I must say this stuff works great! It gives a great end product.
