A quality panel
I love both the cradled and flat panels. Ampersand is the highest quality. The cradles are well-cut and perfectly fit together. The surface and edges of the board are very smooth. Please note: there are no hanging holes in the back of a flat panel. #sweepstakes
Ampersand Hardbords - My Go To's
from Austin, TX
I try to keep the Hardbords on hand because they are versatile and can handle anything. A couple of coats of gesso & I can paint or just collage straight on the surface.
These are a must

i have used Hardbord for several years now, and it is an excellant product. Different companies produce masonite boards for painters, and this one of the better ones. On the 8-by-10 inch and smaller boards ---i would say the one-eighth inch thickness is fine. However when choosing, for instance, a 16-by-20 size ...i would prefer to see a board thickness of one-quarter inch.

I love painting on my Ampersand Hardboards. I first spray gesso them with 4 coats of gesso. I buy 8x10 boards and frame them myself. I use gouache paint and they hold up perfectly on the boards. The boards are firm and lightweight. They are perfect for framing and hanging. I strongly recommend them for painting.
will buy again
