Gesso as a primer

After reading this post on WeeToySoldiers , I decided to try out this technique. I bought a 500ml of DeSerres brand of Black Acrylic Gesso at Loomis for 8.95$

From what I've read, you paint this stuff on your minis, wait 24 hours and you've got a nice base to work on. When you first paint it on, it looks quite messy but the magic is that is shrinks as it dries filling in all the cavities.
