Welcome to dickblick
This solid wood art Gessobord shadow box is pre-primed with premium gesso on the inside. Each box is 2" deep, so they're great for dioramas, installations, and three-dimensional painting. Shadow Boxes are also archival and accept all types of finishes.
Kids can place a few of their favorite things inside that relate to a book they're studying or hobbies they love.
For more great room accents, custom paint the shadow box to house a special piece of memorabilia or place candles inside.
Walls of the shadow boxes are ½" deep. Shadow box interior dimensions are 1" smaller than the sizes shown below. Cover/facing not included.

Ampersand Gessobord Shadow Boxes are AWESOME
from Columbia, MO
Comments about Ampersand Gessobord Shadow Boxes:
These shadow boxes are nearly workshop ready. A little sanding to remove stickiness from packaging and a little sealer and they were ready! In addition, the card stock packaging has a perforated edge and when torn is a template of perfect size.I like the high quality craftsmanship and quality of this project.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good product with efficient delivery.
from Mill valley
I use these for an art camp. Kids are now between 9 and 12. This is the fifth year for some and we do the same diorama format every summer. Nice series for them. We choose a theme and have used dreams or other stories for inspiration. They incorporate their own small favorite objects and create Enchanting personal installations.Only wish the diorama box came in a larger size.

I purchased these box frames for an art camp I'll be giving this summer with my grand daughters and some of their friends. The project is for them to conceptualize and create theater using their own story. Mixed media will be used for scenery and three dimensional objects. As an artist, I have made my own box frames and am aware of the time and expertise it takes. It would be difficult to supervise young children and allow time for the crafting of the frames along with making the art.[...] Thank you!
Gessobord is Ampersand's surface for oil and acrylic painting. These premium painting surfaces are made with a unique archival seal technology that provides a barrier between the wood substrate and the painting surface. A professional artist grade of acrylic gesso is then applied so the boards are ready to use — no preparation is necessary.
Ampersand manufactures a wide variety of archival artist panels. There is a surface for every artist, every medium and every technique. Watch this video to learn which of these boards is right for you!
