Awesome Painting Board
By Lady Jill
from Washoe Valley, Nevada
Comments about Gatorfoam Board:
I ordered 3 boards that a full sheet of watercolor paper fit on, using bull dog clips. They are light weight, sturdy and I don't know why I waited so long to order these! Love them!.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A wonderful product. I now have two sizes.
from Central NY
While painting, I constantly go out to the kitchen table to take a break, and I like to bring the painting with me, to critique it from across the room and check on my progress. If it's a large painting, carrying it mounted on a wooden board can be way too heavy, not very portable. With the gatorboard, I snatch it up and take it to the kitchen with ease. It remains flat while painting, unlike foam-core backing boards, which can get a belly in them, or even a crease. I like to use the white finish, as it resembles a mat around the painting. The 23" by 31" will accept a full sheet of watercolor paper. I also have a 16" x 23", for smaller works.
sturdy, useful for stapling watercolor paper

Lightweight, smaller size than "amazing art board", but cheaper.
from Radcliff, KY
Best price for this Gator board that I've seen!After soaking, I staple my Arches watercolor paper to it, and after painting it's still as flat as can be!I am VERY pleased with my choice!
I use this product regularly.

As a substrate for watercolor paper.
By W. Artist
With a few layers of mat medium in order to waterproof the surface, these boards are perfect for stretching watercolor paper. They don't warp, even when stretching large sheets. 25"x40" sheets can be stretched with no problem.
Best price for Gatorboard!
I needed this fast for a workshop and for a few more dollars it came extra fast. Because the price was so good for the boards I didn't mind. Best price I've ever seen for gatorboard.
Sturdy and Light
from Rock Island, IL
I use gator foam board to stretch my watercolor paper and paint on. I love how light and sturdy it is with no buckling or warping when using lots of water.

Gator foam board
I am very happy with the way this Gator foam BPboard worked out for my watercolor technique. After I inked in the penciI lines with mt Rapidograph pen and let it dry, I soaked the Arches 140# cold-pressed watercolor paper, then stapled it thoroughly all around the edges. I painted it in with Winsor Newton (pan] watercolors and let it dry thoroughly.The wc paper dried perfectly flat and the staples were so easy to remove!I a very pleased with this product and plan to buy more.

Still flat after it dried!
By Blick Art fan
I have purchased this Gatorfoam Board from Blick Art before and have been real satisfied. I needed 2 more boards because I have multiple paintings started at one time. This is a true gator board and does not warp like foam boards do. When you buy this make sure it says gator board or gator foam board. Blick always says in the description. And it was on sale when I bought it; so it was a great deal!!
