Claybord features

The Ultimate Multimedia Panel

Perfect for mixed media, inks, acrylic, graphite, fine detail, heavy impasto, collage, airbrush, gouache, egg tempera, scratchboard, printmaking techniques, mounting, and more. Claybord's absorbent coating will result in oil paints drying very rapidly and to a matte finish. Visit Oil on Claybord for more information.

Limitless Techniques

Unique clay ground allows artists to etch into the surface to add contrast, texture, and details. Erase with oil-free steel wool or very fine sandpaper.

High-Density Hardbord™ Core

Claybord is made from our premium warp-resistant FSC-certified Hardbord™, the most stable substrate on the market for your artwork.

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.
