Build up your own unique painting grounds and textures on this ultra-stable true hardboard support. Hardbord panels are made in the U.S. from quality hardwoods, and are engineered for stability to eliminate 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. Hardbord accepts grounds for oils, acrylics, egg tempera, encaustic, and gold leaf, and also excellent surface for mounting paper.
The cradled version of Hardbord features 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.
