Welcome to dickblick
Baltic Birch Panels are popular with artists because of their firm, smooth surface, neutral color, strength, and affordable cost.
The smooth, sanded surface and edges on these Baltic Birch Panels make them ideal for detailed work. They also can be used with oil, acrylic, and encaustic paints — and they're a great surface for mounting prints, canvases, collages, and other mixed-media artworks.
Baltic Birch Panels are available in a variety of popular sizes, including square sizes, in convenient packs of five panels. Each panel measures 1/8" (3 mm) thick.

I purchased these panels to make mosiacs, which I put into a frame. I love the way it turned out. The panels are nice and thin, so I feel like there are many different framing possibilities. When I purchased these I had planned on screwing in a hook on the back to hang from the wall, but the panels are too thin for that in my opinion. I do love the finished look of it in the frame though and am very happy with my purchase.

These come a size that is always a little too large to fit in pre-made frames that measure the same size as these boards. You have to have course sand paper on hand to reduce the size before framing. Keep this in mind during production. In some cases it will be best to sand to fit before painting your picture. I have used these with painters tape on unfinished surface and when it was pulled off small wood fibers break away from the surface. This creates an not smooth surface and finishing with a clear coat before tape use might be in order.

I applied one coat of gesso to this panel and it warped immediately.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Very smooth surface to do pyrography. Quality product.
Extra work needed.
By Mart Art
from Milford, DE
I use birch panels for oil painting and usually buy from another vendor. I bought Dick Blick's because they were cheaper. However I found that the Dick Blick panels were rougher and needed an extra coat (3 total) of Shellac on the painting surface and more sanding than the panels I usually buy. Some of the edges were cracked from the saw and the edges were rough. Will not buy again because of the extra work.

Exactly what I wanted
from New York
The panels were sanded, not splintery or rough and had been seasoned well enough that they hardly bowed while being primed. I use them for acrylic and tempera paintings. They provide a smooth, rigid surface without the slickness of Masonite.
from Santa fe, nm
I had hope to use these panels to test paints but in the initial prep of sealing both sides they wrapped. I them put them in press to flatten them out. That did not work. They ended up in garbage.
Good teachin surface
By Mixed Media Artist
from Janesville, WI
I use this to teach colored pencil drawing on wood. It is an intro to using the pencil for decorating furniture and doing trompe l'oeil images. It has an even grain that takes the pencil very well and is a good size for beginners to work with.
from White Bear Lake
It was disappointing that the boards warped before I could get them sealed.
