Anyone here have experience using gesso? A lot of artists use it to prep their paint surfaces, I first used it priming canvases in college art classes. Just returning to the hobby after many years, and I needed a brush-on. I always swore by the GW aerosols (and generic equivalents) because of how thin they went on, and this is just as good. It contracts as it dries, so even areas where I lazily slopped it on retained their detail.

I bought this bottle of it at Michael's for like $10, and after painting 25-30 Warma figures I doubt I've used a fifth of it. Great alternative to sprays, especially for these winter months and those of us in uppity apartment complexes where the sound of a spray can being shook has the entire place looking out their windows.

I've tried Gesso. I think I'm going to continue using it only on canvases.
