Every Encausticbord begins with Ampersand's 1/8" Hardbord, the finest pressed wood panel available. Made in the U.S. from quality hardwoods, Hardbord resists warping and moisture penetration.
The special surface is made from an acid-free archival ground which is highly absorbent and holds tight to layers of wax and collage without cracking or separating. It can be used with any combination of mediums to create incredible textures, colors, and patterns.

Encausticbord for mixed media
Comments about Ampersand Encausticbord:
The surface is great and holds onto all kinds of media with no trouble. I like the cradled better than flat for display purposes. I wish dick blick would protect edges better when shipping I have had to return at least two due to crushed edges. Great surface and overall product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Encaustic Art is becoming more popular and the materials, particularly the quality of the boards, are really important.
Good for encaustic and cold wax
from Davis, CA
Works well for base layers of oil/cold wax--material sticks to surface, absorbs, available when removing top layers.
Perfect substrate for encaustic
from Beverly, ma
These boards are just what I was looking for. After trying various other boards, I find ampersand the best. They are prepared for instant application of wax, collage, color marking, etc.
My first choice with oils and cold wax medium
The encaustic board takes and holds oil paint mixed with cold wax wonderfully. I can apply many layers and work them for texture without having to worry about it being too flexible. I like that I can get them cradled.
I would buy this product again and again and again and again

The product is for a school demonstration and will be perfect. The shipping box was badly damaged, but thankfully the boards were in good condition.

Used this product for encaustic art. Works very, very well.
A Great Product
By Bermuda 57
from Idaho Fall, ID
I have used Ampersand Encaustic Board products for years. It is a great product if you do not want to take the time to prepare a natural wood board for your work. I often do both, however, for the most part I use the Ampersand. It receives the medium well, holds up to heat and modeling.I recommend it highly.
