Acrylic on Gessobord
Gessobord is the perfect choice for acrylic painting. Forget about the time-consuming process of applying and sanding several applications of gesso; Gessobord is ready to use, no preparation necessary. So, you can take it right out of the packaging and start painting.

The slight, semi-smooth, consistent texture of the surface allows for amazing brush control for even the finest detail and is excellent for all techniques. Prefer a smoother surface or more texture? Sand Gessobord to make the surface smoother or apply a coat or two of your favorite acrylic gesso to add more texture.
Unlike canvas, Gessobord is strong enough to hold up to the most rigorous palette knife painting and will not bow or flex. Use Gessobord for plein air, palette knife, heavy impasto, wipe-out, and glazing techniques.
