Welcome to dickblick
Save a ton of prep time and get right to work!
American Easel Gessoed Wood Painting Panels are manufactured in the USA from top-quality 1/8" birch, which is sanded to render a smooth, firm painting surface. They're then primed with two coats of acrylic gesso, a universal ground for oil or acrylic painting as well as mixed media work.
Cradled with a solid wood frame with smooth, sanded edges, these panels won't flex, stretch, or warp, and they last longer than canvas. The sides are left unprimed, but can be coated with gesso if desired. When your artwork is complete, simply hang it flush to the wall using only a single nail or screw — no frame required!
Available in rectangular or square formats in a variety of sizes, choose a Flat cradle (7/8" deep) or a Deep cradle (1-5/8" deep).

Nice Smooth Surface
By Laura S
from Marietta, GA
Comments about American Easel Gessoed Wood Painting Panels:
I usually paint in oils on the hardboard you get at home improvement stores because I prefer smooth over the texture of canvas. However, I began to worry about possible warping of the hardboard and wondered just how professional it looks to give to a client. So, I gave these panels with the wood framing a try, and I have to say I'll probably never switch back! They look great, and after an extra coat of gesso and some sanding, they paint like a dream.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good product but please watch glued on label!!
By Hey Val
from Wausau, WI
Well made panel - fun to paint on. BUT PLEASE Blick, ask the manufacturer to NOT glue the label onto the painting surface! Product is already plastic wrapped, WHY glue the label on?! Had to scrape off glue and print residue, marring the surface.
Gessoed Panels Rock
from Oakland, CA
I used gessoed panels instead of canvas now, as I like to do assemblage work and they stand up to a lot of pushing. They are beautifully done with nice clear edges.
Exactly as described!
from Old San Juan, PR
I paint with acrylics. These panels are so easy to paint on. Colours end up bright like in watercolour.

Great for extremely fine detail in oi
By Floating Brush
from Asheville, North Carolina
I used a panel to create the finished black and white design for a logo. I did this in oils.I traced the unfinished penciled design from tracing paper. The gessoed board took the tracing nicely.The smooth surface really felt good to paint on and is excellent for camera ready art work I am really looking forward to creating a series of extremely detailed oil paintings on the panels. I have painted in oils on portrait canvas for 30 years with extreme detail and I think I will be able to get better detail on these panels as they are smoother. I also like that the panels have deep paintable sides and are ready to hangI have always stretched my own canvases and as I am getting older my hands are finding this hard to do. I love that these panels are ready to work on with no stretching needed!
I LOVE this panel!!
By Emma the Explorer
from Laguna Beach, CA
I use this product as a shadow box and it is so much better than other panels. It looks like it was meant to be used this way!! And on the occasions that I have used in a conventional manner--painting the surface--it has performed very well.
solid, streamlined, time-saving!
By painter lady
from rantoul, IL
I didn't have time to build a box for a last-minute portrait comission, so i purchased a panel to paint on. i was happily surprised!! for the price, it was sturdier than i imagined, but still so lightweight. super clean edges --- better than my woodworking skills for sure. i'm thinking i'll be checking out this time-saving bargain in the future. thanks for making my life simpler!
