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.

Good for encaustic and cold wax
from Davis, CA
Comments about Ampersand Encausticbord:
Works well for base layers of oil/cold wax--material sticks to surface, absorbs, available when removing top layers.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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

Giving... Mixed media on Encausticbord
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.
Ampersand encaustic board

Ready to use, and just right for encaustic...no prep needed. I would use these every time.
Good and Easy Product
from Nampa, ID
I purchased the flat 1/8"-4 pack 5"x5" Ampersand encausticbord. I'm using them for encaustics. They're fun and easy to use. Great for practicing new techniques. They're also small enough to keep around for references. I think a perfectionist would want to touch up the gesso on the sides or corners. Luster wax might not be very forgiving on this product. One of my panels did not come with a level application of gesso. Starting with an uneven surface, even though it's only slight, is frustrating.
Merchant response: Thank you for your review! We're sorry to hear that there were defects in the gesso on one of the Encausticbords. A member of our Customer Care Team will be in touch so we can take care of this for you.
