Museum Series Aquabord is a textured, highly absorbent surface designed for watercolor and gouache. Aquabord is crafted from our premium warp-resistant 1/8" FSC-certified Hardbord™ that is protected with our proprietary Archiva-Seal™ and coated with an acid-free clay and mineral ground with a texture similar to cold-pressed watercolor paper. Colors retain their purity and vibrancy in a way that even the finest of watercolor papers can't match and Aquabord allows artists to frame and display their watercolor without glass.

Aquabord info & inspiration

Aquabord features

An Amazing Watercolor Surface

Achieve truer, brighter colors, endless glazes, and easily lift colors back to the white of the surface to create depth and highlights.

Frame Without Glass

Unlike watercolor papers, Aquabord allows artists to frame and display their watercolor artwork without glass.

High-Density Hardbord™ Core

Aquabord will not tear, shrink, or buckle even under heavy water application. No stretching or mounting is required making it a perfect surface for plein air.

Truly Archival

Sealed and protected with our proprietary Archiva-Seal™ barrier technology to prevent yellowing from Support Induced Discoloration (SID).

Eco-Friendly and Artist Safe

Central to Ampersand’s mission is to ensure that our products do not harm the environment or the artists who use them. Both our domestic and imported panels are made from FSC-certified forest products that promote sustainable forests and are also free from formaldehyde or harmful VOCs (volatile organic compounds), unlike other hardboards and MDF boards.

Made in the USA

Proudly handcrafted in our factory in Buda, Texas. Unparalleled quality and craftsmanship have made Ampersand Art Supply the leader in painting panels for over 25 years.
