Love these Panels!
These panels are such great quality. I may never use canvas again!
Great quality for great prices
I shop around to buy art panels to paint on and keep returning to Block because even with shipping the prices are the best (and the quality too). The only reason I didn't give full stars on the quality being the "best" is because I'm there are other panels out there or you can have custom made at the same quality (but the prices will be more for others!). I've been buying these panels for over 2 years now and they're great.

I am using these alot, they look great with the floater frames or alone. The company is great too, a great product.
Love American Easel wood panels. Can't say enough about them..Superior quality.. No need to try another brand!
from New Orleans, LA
This is the first time that I ordered a gessoed panel though I paint on wood panels exclusively...I love it!!! The transparent gesso allows for a more authentic experience while painting on wood and more importantly it looks beautiful. It arrived in excellent condition. It was carefully packaged, with extra attention given to the corners. I will be purchasing more.

ACRYLIC USERS BEWARE!
from Asheville, NC
I had high hopes for this panel since I love the non-gessed ones. However I use Golden Acrylics and the paint does not stick to the surface well. It beads up with any amount of water in the paint and become slick and removable. Its frustrating as all hell! I had to work it and dry a layer of my own acrylics before I could then paint on top of the clear gesso. I am certain it would be best with oil paints. If you use acrylics, be warned - its not very good with a waterbased paint!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Gessoed panels have considerably less absorption than non-gessoed panels. In order to compensate for this, it is not recommended to thin with water as that weakens the binding ability of acrylics. We would suggest using a small amount of flow medium and gel mediums instead. Applying a fresh thin coat of clear gel medium may also give you a more receptive surface on which to work.
from North Carolina
I use acrylic paint and exclusively paint on wood. Was making my own panels, but never more. These are well-crafted and gessoed well. Huge time savings and equivalent to the price I was paying for materials.
