Gessobord info & inspiration

Gessobord features

Professional Artists' #1 Choice for Oils and Acrylics

The superior quality acrylic gesso ground does not dull colors and the slight, even texture provides exceptional brush control for fine detail. Gessobord is perfect for plein air, palette knife work, heavy impasto, wipe-out, and glazing techniques.

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. It is strong enough to hold up to the most rigorous palette knife painting and heavy layers of collage and will not bow or flex like canvas.

Handcrafted Cradles

Premium-grade, 13-ply birch plywood cradles provide a beautiful profile and offer maximum support to protect your art and prevent warping.

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.
