The Artist Panel: Primed Smooth

Mallard Ducks by Dustin Dattilio in acrylic and airbrush

Our Artist Panel series was created with affordability and ease in mind.  But, some artists are driven to use Artist Panel for it’s unique benefits.  There are three distinct panels in this series, all of which are different from our Museum Series of panels, adding opportunities for artists who need something a bit different.

The Artist Panel comes in Primed Smooth, Canvas Texture and Unprimed varieties.  I want to highlight the Primed Smooth panel because of its perfectly prepared edges, something not available in any other panel we make. It is a great surface for wrapping a work around the edges in lieu of framing.

The panels themselves are made from sustainable MDF, medium density fiberboard, and the cradles are made from solid pine, and available in both 7/8″ and 1 1/2″ depths. The panel is also available in an 1/8″ flat design, too.  This Primed Smooth panel is completely ready for taking on art, prepared on the surface and all of the edges with an acid-free acrylic gesso ground.  It’s semi-absorbent surface is good for oils, acrylics and drawing as well as mounting paper, prints and canvas.  

We are always on the look out for artists using our products, so if you work on the Artist Panel, give us a shout.  You can reach us here through our blog, on Facebook, through Twitter or Pinterest and via email.  

More work to come by Artist Panel artists.

Happy Painting!
