Welcome to dickblick
The convenience of these extra-thick, stable boards eliminates the need for stretching or mounting.
Crescent Watercolor Boards feature a 100% rag, heavyweight (140 lb, 300 gsm), acid-free paper mounted to an extra-heavyweight (.090”) core. Uniform surface sizing and internal sizing provide maximum durability for wet-on-wet techniques, reworking, and erasing.
Enhanced for use with paints such as watercolors, acrylics, and gouache, Crescent Watercolor Boards can also be used for airbrushing, illustration, and light collage. They are not recommended for oil paints unless primed with gesso first. The board edges should be taped or waxed when used for heavy washes.

The first time I've had a problem with this watercolor board
from Selinsgrove, PA
I have used the Crescent watercolor board for years and this is the first time I've ever had a problem with it. There are 2 long streaks of what appears to be a build up of the sizing through the 30x40 board. I ordered the smaller size in a previous order but needed the 30x40 for a large project and won't be able to use this board.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for sharing with us. This defnitely sounds like a defect in the sizing on the board. Our Customer Care team will be happy to assist you with an exchange. If you have any questions, please give us a call at 1.800.723.2787.

THIS CRESCENT BOARD SPELLS D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R
By Pepe First
from Atlanta, GA
I was painting a watercolor on a Crescent 30 X 40 board. I did not have previous experience on this material. After expending a day on the pencil drawing of a beautiful landscape of Vernazza (Italy) I observed that the paper on the board did not absorb the pigments and, therefore converted my paint in a total mess. The paints mixed up without control an the result was horrible. Of course, I only painted the sky and background but I loss the day I expend on the sketch. DO NOT USE THOSE BOARDS! After this I switched back to my usual method of take an Archer paper and put in on a Gatorboard or similar properly fixed with watercolor tape. On this way my paint was a success.

I have been using Crescent Watercolor boards for over 30 years and I noticed on my last batch of boards that I purchased the backing color was different and the board did not work as well as the other (original green backing boards) I addressed the problem to Crescent and they told me that they use a different paper manufacturer....that's why the quality of the boards aren't as good.

do not buy this board
By spencer simons fine artist
from Belgrade, Mt.
I had 40+ hours into a painting on this board. Then went to do a wash for a sky. The top layer of paper rippled and lifted. The board buckled. My work is ruined. I read on a forum of others having this same problem. Wish I had read that before I wasted my time, effort and materials.

Crescent Watercolor board is sensational! I have so much fun with this product! My watercolors and fluid acylics turn out bright and beautiful on this board. It's great to not have to mess with stretching or taping down paper to prevent buckling. Plus, the board is completely archival and easy to frame. You can't go wrong with this board.
