Welcome to dickblick
Made with Ampersand's own True Artist Hardbord substrate, Gessobord is perfect for all studio and plein air painting applications. Its fine tooth finish is delicate enough for glazing, fluid brush strokes, and tight detail, yet tough enough to hold up to the most rigorous palette knife painting, collage, and masking techniques.
This premium archival surface is ready to use — no priming or prepping is required! Pre-primed with a professional-quality, acid-free Titanium White acrylic gesso ground for enhanced clarity of color, Gessobord is an ideal surface for traditional and water-based oils, alkyds, acrylics, collage, and mixed media.
Flat panels can be framed or mounted. Cradled panels can be hung on a wall with no additional framing. The edges are sanded, so you can apply your favorite ground to create an extra dimensional painting.
Made from sustainable forest products that ensure the protection of wildlife, plants, soil and water, Gessobord is formaldehyde-free and contains no harmful volatile organic compounds.
Gessobord is made in the USA.

What a difference in my paintings
By Happy painter
from Kingsport, Tennessee
Painting on this with oil paints makes a world of difference! The oils seem to glide on smoothly and when it dries looks fantastic! I've always used canvas, but after Gesso Ampersand , this is my choice for painting on now!!
Product is great. Already primed is going to save me a lot of time and sanding. Very pleased.can always add more gesso for texture. Smooth.
very satisfied with speed and material I ordered

Greatest Panels at a Great Price
By Happy Painter
from New Bedford, MA
These panels are ready to paint and a great value. They are already primed with a smooth surface. Do be careful, the edges chip easy.
These are the best surfaces to oil paint! The paints glides on beautifully! I have use them in an online class by Dreama Perry and everyone on our site love them!
from Cedar Rapids, Iowa
I have used this gessobord several times. After trying out some others, I can definitely say I like the surface as well as the solid build of these the best. The surface is smooth without being slippery. The edges are well constructed. I will continue to buy these.

A New Favorite of Mine
By Small Town Guy
from Maurice, IA
I have become a real fan of this item. Beautiful smooth surface and quality build. Dick Blick has given me fantastic service on an occasion when I happened to receive one of these with a damaged corner and replaced it quickly. I will be using Gessoboard products for a long time to come.
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!
