Welcome to dickblick
Prized for their strength, stability, and perfect smoothness, hardwood panels have been a popular painting support since the 14th century. For today's artist, Blick is pleased to offer our Premier Wood Panels — among the best quality you can find on the market and, like all Blick products, a terrific value.
They feature a premium select 4 mm solid basswood surface braced by a solid basswood cradle. We've chosen basswood (also known as linden) for its fine, uniform characteristics, limited wood grain, and proven stability over time. Each panel is precision-crafted, meticulously sanded on all sides, and ready to prime with the ground of your choice.
Because of their rigidity and resistance to bowing, Blick Premier Wood Panels are a popular support for heavy paint applications and encaustics. They are also great for mounting photos, paper, prints, fabric and more.
They are backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Note— Unfinished solid wood may expand and contract with changes in humidity and temperature. Conservators highly recommend that wood panels be fully primed on both front and back to ensure the long-term stability of your artwork.
Order Fulfillment Note— As we complete a transition in stock, your order may be fulfilled with either Blick Premier Wood Panels or Utrecht Artists' Wood Panels. Rest assured, the fabrication details and workmanship of both brands are identical.

Comments about Blick Premier Wood Panels:
I love painting on wood, particularly with water soluble pencils, or even watercolors. Both of these require prepping with some gesso or glaze or matte medium. Design your own messy stuff. Be certain it has dried overnight if you do use such a prep. The wood can be used for all sorts of supplies. You might get a small size panel and see what you can do. I love it so much I have switched away from paper for most of my work and gone with wood. Some kinds of wood panels have more finish on them already, but this may resist whatever you are trying to put on it--read the specs very carefully.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not as good
By Harold Roth
from Pawtucket, RI
I usually buy American Easel wood panels but decided to try Blick's Premier Wood Panels because a) someone said the Blick panel seemed sturdier and b) because after applying a discount code, the Blick panels were cheaper. When I got them, I found that the Blick Premier panels are not as good as the American Easel wood panels. The Blick panels' corners are stapled; the American Easel panels are fitted and glued. The glue on the Blick panels is very sloppy and there are drips on the back of most of the panels. No drips or glue showing on the back of American Easel panels. The cradling on the Blick panels is thinner than the cradling of the American Easel, which is further nicely shaped and finished, whereas the Blick cradles are sharp and raw. I will use these to finish a series but will not buy Blick Premier wood panels again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Good to use after I apply oil primer on top of it; works well. Well made.I think this may also work as a good surface to attach primed linen with some ph neutral adhesive; need to try.
Sturdy surface for palette knife painting
from Kansas City, MO
I"ve enjoyed using these panels quite a bit for palette knife painting because they don't wiggle when I work like a canvas. I buy the deep sided cradled panels so that I don't have to frame them. I've used them for several years and haven't seen any warping. They've held up well.
I use the blocks for displaying my watercolors. I use gel medium for attaching and Dorland wax for top coat. I leave the sides of the block natural looking with a light coat of Dorland wax.

These are carefully crafted wood panels with no defects and a lovely smooth surface. For the price, it's a winner!!

Love the new improved Premier Wood Panels
from Asheville North Carolina
I have buying these panels for about five years. In the past I would not write a review because I felt the panels needed to be a lot of improvement. I was using a lot of wood filler and sand paper. The boxes were not square and the sizes varied making it difficult to print my Giclee prints the correct size. The new boxes needed no sanding and they were all the same size, square. So I felt it was time to finally let Dick Blick and others know their efforts have paid off and I am very appreciative of this new and improved version of wood panels.

Have not used this product yet but plans to mosaic with glass. Perfect flat smooth surface and well constructed

I use this panel for my painting, the size I am using is hard to find and the panel works great.
