Encausticbord info & inspiration

Encausticbord features

Designed for the Demands of Encaustic

A specially formulated gesso forms a bright, velvety surface on warp-resistant Hardbord™ that is ready to use for encaustic painting. The ground is heat resistant, highly absorbent, and holds tight to layers of wax without the fear of cracking or separation.

Highly Versatile

The lightly textured, absorbent surface is great with mixed media and can be used with both wet and dry media. Use Encausticbord with charcoal, colored pencil, heavy paint applications, graphic markers, collage, acrylic, and more.

High-Density Hardbord™ Core

Ampersand’s premium, warp-resistant, FSC-certified Hardbord™ ensures your artwork is supported to prevent damage from warping, bowing, or movement.

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.
