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.

I make assemblages of wood. Painted wood pieces are glued to the board. They are beautifully presented on the Ampersand board.

Ampersand -economic and quality in one piece.
By Alexis McCarthy
from Georgetown, TX
Ampersand geso panels come in a variety of sizes and depths. I generally use the 1/8" panels for plein air painting b/c they are easy to pack and paint on location. Geso panels have a light tooth that quickly holds the paint for quick studies. And yet is very forgiving if you decide to wipe the panel and start fresh.

Great surface, professional, solid craftsmanship on the cradles.
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!
