I like it but I hate the sticker on it
from Durham NC
I use these for taping down my watercolors and they hold up nicely for that. I also will use them as a nice flat surface for sketching but mainly for watecolor's. My biggest pet peeve with these is the dumb sticker that's on every ... single... one. And its not like some small sticker its huge. You cannot get it off without living this terrible sticky residue. So you have to leave it. On some you can just flip over but on a couple of these that's not an option because the other side is textured. If the sticker doesn't bother your OCD as it does mine then this is a total winner. I would give at least 4 stars maybe even 5 if not for the sticker. Bottom line the product does work and the price is very reasonable. But i ordered the product not a sticker.
These panels are working perfectly for me.
I am using an acrylic technique on these panels that also requires water. I gesso the panels before use. So far I have not experienced any warping at all. The panels also work great as backing for Bristol or other such panels that do warp. I am pleased and will definitely be purchasing more.

I would not buy this product again!
from Chehalis, WA.
This hardboard panel is a very low quality! Too much time, work and money to prime it. Warps when primed. I would recommend the Dick Blick panels over the hardboard panels! Do not waste your money on this product!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback on these panels. It's true that this value-priced, untempered hardboard is not as resistant to warping as a tempered panel, and we're sorry if this is not what you expected. Please know that whenever you're considering trying out an unfamiliar surface, our Product Information Team is happy to discuss the product's characteristics as they would relate to your particular technique. Product Specialists are available weekdays from 8am to 5:30pm CST at 1-800-933-2542 or firstname.lastname@example.org, and they'll be glad to help!

Ok for the price
Priming only one side caused it to warp . This seemed to be corrected by priming the back-side too. Then I added a Gesso with pumice, coarse grain and am working on a piece now. It's much more flexible than pre-primed hardboard, and it's lighter. It probably will need some framing on the back to keep it rigid enough for display. Alone it is probably too light and flexible not to warp. For a less heavy, more flexible support this is a good value. And it has no oils in the glue if you're worried about seepage. I'm still experimenting with hardboards. If the others turn out to have negative qualities, I would definitely return to these.
MDF vs Birch
from Rockville, MD
This was an experiment. Had to sandpaper (a lot) and seal with a coat of PVC before painting. Like low cost, but will take most testing before I decide. For simple mounting of acrylic paper works with PVA glue, it seems to work well.
Great for Watercolor Papers
By Terri the WineLady
from Christiansburg, VA
We use for Watercolor classes - perfect size for taping down 2 9 x 12 pieces of watercolor paper to work on two projects at once - letting one dry while working on the other. Great Deal.
Will do the job
By Jim the "old dude"
from On the High Bank of the Brazos River
They will do the job. As noted in another review they have a sticker stuck on the board that peals the cover off when removed. They are great weight for travel. As far as price, they are better than buying a whole sheet at the lumber yard.
Merchant response: Thank you for your review. Remember, applying heat to the sticker will allow for clean removal. If you ever have questions when using a product you purchase from us, we hope you'll let us help! Just call 1-800-933-2542 (8am-5:30pm CST M-F) or email email@example.com.
The Perfect Surface
By Landscape Lou
from Gatesville, Texas
I paint acrylic landscapes, mostly, so I find this is my favorite surface. I use a small to medium roller to prepare the surface in various colors/textures of thin gesso, making it a versatile, nearly indestructible surface for most of my projects.
I will be buying again
I use to have a dedicated surface for projects
