The right tool for the job.™

Get the job done right in a fraction of the time with less mess and no waste.

If you prime canvases and panels with gesso or Oil Ground, you know how time-consuming it is to get a thin, even coat. You also know what a pain it is to clean brushes afterward. And how wasteful single-use paint rollers are.

With the Gamblin Ground and Gesso Blade, you get a perfect, even application from edge-to-edge in a fraction of the time, with less mess and no waste. Best of all, it is the first and only artist’s tool made from 100% recycled material. Wipe clean after use and reuse your Ground and Gesso Blade over and over.

100% recycled material

Un-dyed re-grind is melted and re-molded instead of wasted.

What you’ll love

  • Crisp, flexible, tapered edge. Ideal for a smooth finish!
  • Designed to allow you to move, mix, and scoop product without getting your fingers in the mess
  • Durable and infinitely reusable
  • Compact and slim compared to rollers and brushes
  • Wipes clean with Gamsol, soap and water, or safflower oil

Made in the Pacific Northwest

As part of Gamblin's Brand Promise and commitment to supporting local businesses and being mindful of the carbon footprint involved in the transportation of materials, they partnered with a small, family-owned manufacturer.  

So much more than a spatula

While the Ground and Gesso Blade is named after its primary job, this tool has earned its place in the studio for other applications.

Alternative uses

  • Sizing canvas and linen with Gamblin PVA Size

Clean your Blade with Gamsol, soap and water, a cleaning wipe, or Safflower Oil.
