hardbord™ – A better support from start to finish
Build up your own unique painting grounds and textures on this ultra-stable true hardboard support. High-density fiber core is engineered for stability eliminating the warping and bowing issues found in other substrates. Moisture resistant and formaldehyde-free, it’s the choice substrate for all Ampersand Museum Series pre-coated panels. Perfectly suited to all acrylic gesso and oil primers.
- Choose from 1/8" flat panel, ¾" cradle and 2" Deep cradle
- Hardbord accepts grounds for oils, acrylics, egg tempera, encaustic, and gold leaf
The cradled versions of Hardbord feature supports that are glued flush with the back edge of the panel. The cradle provides extra support while giving the panel depth and dimension, making it ready to hang on the wall. The birch plywood cradles can be left unfinished or treated easily with wood stain, gesso or paint.
