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.

Comments about Fox Haase Baltic Birch Panel Group Packs:
Great product, maybe I didn't read the description well enough or could be mentioned that it's a solid piece versus having it framed in the back to hang.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

An Interesting Alternative
from New York, NY
I really like this stuff! The Ivory is my fave, although Holbein has a very impressive line of colors. My other favorite is the Mint Green. The combination of gouache and acrylic makes this durable and flexible while still providing full coverage and opaque color, but it can also be mixed with other paints. The only thing to keep in mind is that although it's gouache, it dries like acrylic, so if you have a blob on your palette, you can't reconstitute it with water the way you can watercolors or traditional gouache. That's not a bad thing, just something to remember so you don't waste paint.
You Can't Go Wrong with Baltic Birch
By Carrie L. Lewis
from Newton, Kansas
I'm always looking for archival quality materials from the paint I use to the supports I paint on.Baltic Birch is a solid, reliable painting support.These panels are well-made, perfectly flat, and have performed up to expectation. In fact, the only way they could be more pleasing would be to have beveled edges!
Lightweight, economical DIY painting panels
I finished these panels with several layers of matte spray primer on one side and clear spray varnish on the other to create gorgeous, light-weight oil painting panels. These are a good deal and the varnished wood backs really look nice. I use them for plein air studies. They do need additional sanding before spray painting on the wood side.

I LOVE Dick Blick's birch panels for collage work. They perform wonderfully and make my projects better. Thank you Dick Blick for selling such quality products!
Small sizes only.
from Sapphire, NC
I bought these panels as a base for gluing canvas on them. Almost all of the 8x10 panels showed a degree of warp after the canvas was applied. I would not use larger sizes of these panels because they would probably warp even more.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Solid uniform smooth surface easy to prime and prep. Perfect surface for Plein air lightweight sturdy and easily portable.
from Memphis, TN
I ordered these to use as support for watercolors on board and acrylics on copper so right now I am not painting on them directly. However, they have a nice surface so I plan to gesso and paint on them directly (may require very small amount of sanding). I purchased the flat and simply cut some strips to frame the back. This is an inexpensive way to obtain a cradled look. Very pleased!
Some Panels Are Unusable
Many of the panels I received have rough surfaces, requiring much sanding to prepare them for a ground. Some panels are patched, which is scary as I can see those patches popping loose at some point in the future. Given those problems, I would not purchase these panels again.
