Ampersand Value Series Artist Panels

Ampersand quality, affordably priced!

Ampersand's Value Series Artist Panels are crafted specifically for students, hobbyists, and budget-minded professionals. Manufactured to the highest quality standards, they have many advantages over stretched canvases and are a conservator's first choice for a painting support. They are less susceptible to moisture, never sag or stretch like canvas, and are simple to hang, framed or unframed.

When you're ready to step up to professional quality, try Ampersand Museum Series Panels such as Gessobord, Claybord, Hardbord, Aquabord, Pastelbord, and Encausticbord.

Bonus Value 3-Pack — A Blick exclusive! This value pack with bonus includes three 6" × 6" Ampersand Panels (one each of Claybord, Gessobord, and Encausticbord) plus a FREE Holbein Heavy Body Acrylic Sampler (sample-size tubes of Pyrrole Red, Imidazolone Lemon, and Phthalo Blue).

Canvas Texture — This ready-to-paint panel features top-quality, medium density fiberboard (MDF) coated with premium, acid-free acrylic gesso. The canvas-like surface provides a bit of brush drag for superb control, and results in brighter, truer-looking colors. This panel is able to support heavy paint layers in oil or acrylic, including palette knife painting and other vigorous techniques. It's also perfect for mixed media applications, collage, and assemblage. The panel is available in three profiles — a 3/8" flat panel with hanging slots on the back, as well as 3/4" and 1-1/2" cradled panels. The cradle support frames are handmade using birch plywood and are left unfinished.

Primed Smooth — Great for all painting styles, this panel is made with top-quality, high density fiberboard (HDF), coated on all side with acrylic gesso primer. The silky-smooth, semi-absorbent ground is excellent for painting in oils, acrylics, and waterbased media, as well as for drawing. It's also ideal for mounting papers, ink jet prints, photos, and canvas. Available in a 1/8" flat solid HDF panel, as well as 7/8" profile and 1-1/2" profile cradled panels. The cradle support frames are made using solid pine for maximum stability. With fully primed edges, you have the option of wrapping your images around the sides of the panel.

Smooth Surface Sampler with FREE Golden High Flow — Two fantastically smooth surfaces for fluid paint and pouring techniques, plus two FREE bottles of Golden High Flow Acrylic. The Sampler includes two 9" × 12" cradled panels — a Claybord (3/4" profile) and a Primed Smooth (7/8" profile) — and 30 ml (1 oz) bottles of High Flow Acrylic in Green Gold and Anthraquinone Blue (Indigo).
