Artist Panel Primed Canvas Texture banner

Performs Like a Panel, Feels Like Canvas

Do you want more control over your paint application and truer brighter colors? Then try Ampersand's Value Series - Primed Canvas Texture, a high-quality, medium density fiberboard (MDF) painting panel primed with acid-free acrylic gesso.

The ready-to-paint canvas-like texture is like gessoed canvas in appearance and absorbency, giving artists the familiar feel of a fine linen or canvas with the additional advantages of painting on panels. The durable, rigid, MDF support makes the Primed Canvas Texture panel ideal for palette-knife painting and multimedia applications.

Panels are available in a 3/8" flat profile with hanging slots on the back, or with a 3/4" or 1 1/2" cradle. The cradle support frames are handcrafted using 1/2" birch plywood, offering extreme stability and support. These wood panels will not give, bend or flex. As with all of Ampersand’s panels, they are made with quality materials that have been tested for durability and for performance with artists’ paints.

For ideas on how to treat the edges of the cradle, consult this article on hanging and framing.
