I love it! When building models in 1/4 and 1/2 scales it's great for priming bristol so it doesn't warp as bad when you paint it!

I am an artist who sculpts with vinyl toys for a living. It is often difficult to use traditional coats of gesso without losing the texture I have spent countless hour on sculpting. I use this spray gesso and it is heaven sent. You have to prep your environment and sculptures accordingly. Nothing is quick and easy. If you took the time to sculpt, then you should take the time to prepare for spraying. I recommend only to spray outside. Keep your sculptures like you would during your armature base. Don't use the exact same thing of course but use your creativity (I use upside-down Styrofoam cups and pencils) to hold your sculpture in the position of spraying. If you are not familiar on how to paint with a spray can then I suggest you view a couple of youtube videos to learn about the initial spay (bite)and then the actual coat. After my vinyls dry, I am able to begin painting. If you spray right (again take a tutorial) then you are left with a sculpture that is primes without any seams. It is lighter and ready to paint. But remember not to buy Krylon finishing spray from the section where they have regular spray paint. If you put that over your finished painting project, combined with this gesso, it WILL crack. A nice feature but I doubt that that's the goal for you. I recommend and I will buy again.
