A Smooth Finish Option for Oil and Acrylic Painters

Do you prefer a smooth surface to paint on? Would you like to add more detail to your artwork? Then try Ampersand's Artist Panel - Primed Smooth, a high-quality, 1/8" painting panel coated with an ultra-smooth acid-free acrylic gesso primer.

Primed Smooth cradled panels have a semi-absorbent acid-free ground that is excellent for painting in oils, acrylics and water-media but are also amazing with graphite, collage, graphic markers, ink and much more! It’s also perfectly suited for mounting papers, photos, giclées and canvas.

Panels are available in three distinct profiles - a 1/8" flat, and 7/8" or 1-1/2" solid wood cradled. In addition to being completely primed on the surface, cradled panels are also primed on the sides — perfect for wrapping your images around the panel's edge without the extra prep work! These wood panels will not give, bend or flex.

Like all of Ampersand’s panels, they are made with quality materials that have been tested not only for durability, but also for performance with artists’ paints.
