The gesso is fine, nice quality, but sadly, as others have found, it had leaked in transit and the bubble wrap it was wrapped in was coated in primer. Luckily there was plenty left but still... I'm not sure what can be done about this as there is no seal on the container. Apart from ceasing on-line delivery of this product. Maybe it's up to System 3/manufacturer to start putting a seal on the product.
