Museum Series Gessobord™ is the most trusted pre-gessoed wood panel by artists for their work. The coating is 88% thicker than other gessoed panels on the market. The superior quality acrylic gesso ground does not dull colors, and the wonderful lightly sanded surface provides exceptional brush control. Continue Reading >>
|We highly recommend using thin washes of acrylics on Claybord or try Gessobord for a less absorbent panel or Pastelbord for a surface with more texture and a toned ground.|
|Airbrush||Claybord™||Claybord is ideal for airbrush.|
|Calligraphy||Claybord™||Ampersand recommends Claybord.|
|Claybord and Gessobord are both appropriate for casein.|
|Egg Tempera||Claybord™||Use egg tempera on Claybord. Compare with panels you are preparing yourself.|
|Encaustic||Encausticbord™||Encausticbord is made for the unique demands of encaustic painting.|
|Gouache||Aquabord™||We recommend Aquabord for gouache.|
|Graphite & Colored Pencils||Claybord™||Use graphite and colored pencils with Claybord.|
|We recommend Claybord with inks because they can be easily erased and manipulated.|
|Markers||Claybord™||Use Claybord with markers and frame without glass.|
|Oils & Oil Sticks||Claybord™
|We recommend Gessobord with oils. Claybord can also be used, but is very absorbent.|
|Pastels||Pastelbord™||We recommend Pastelbord with all types of pastels.|
|Scratchboard||Scratchbord™||Use Scratchbord as a professional alternative to scratchboard paper.|
|Watercolors||Aquabord™||Use Aquabord, similar to cold press paper for very wet watercolor washes.|
