Museum Series Pastelbord is a medium textured, highly absorbent surface designed for pastels. Pastelbord is crafted from our premium warp-resistant 1/8" profile FSC-certified Hardbord™ that is protected with our proprietary Archiva-Seal™ and coated with an acid-free clay and gesso ground with a marble dust finish. Artists choose Pastelbord because the tooth of the marble dust finish holds more layers of pastel than paper and it is versatile enough to be used with wet and dry applications.

Perfect for Pastels

Marble dust finish holds more layers of pastel than pastel paper.

Use With Dry or Wet Applications

Pastelbord's unique absorbent coating and rigid Hardbord™ backing allow it to be used for wet or dry applications like charcoal, colored pencil, acrylic, watercolor, and ink.

Available in 4 Colors

Available in a 1/8" profile in 4 colors: grey, green, sand, and white. Thin applications of ink, watercolor, or acrylic can also be used to tone the white Pastelbord to any color desired.

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. 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.
