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.

Very nice, as long as you get a good one...

Comments about Blick Premier Wood Panels:
I'm really torn with these panels. They're wonderful panels at a pretty good price, especially when you get ones that aren't defective, but the quality control is really hit or miss. Blick is always willing to replace the bad ones but it's getting to be a hassle. This mornings flop was a panel that started bubbling up when I painted on Golden GAC100 to seal it (as I do with all of them). I went to cut out the bubbles and the veneer came off in a whole strip. I wish they would get their act together because they really are great panels when they're not defective.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Nice unfinished wood panels
By Nate Flamm
These are nice reasonable priced panels. The fact that they're wood and unfinished means you can perform an image transfer, and paint over the top. Then you will have a finished drawing to pair with your painting!
Excellent Product--great price
from New Bedford
I use these panels to mount photographs, finishing the surface with protective Moab Desert Varnish.

Terrific product I will use again and again.
I wood burn game boards and clocks and wall art. The surface is perfect and finishes beautifully.

Good but not perfect, not premier.
from New Bedford, MA
I use these panels to mount inkjet photographic prints. I stain the the sides but in this last batch of nine panels that I purchased, there was too much variation in the grain and quality of the wood. There were knots on one of the nine panels, and residue of the glue used in joining the corners spilled over on the surface of two others. The glue areas would not take a stain and therefore show up much lighter than the rest of the side.
Merchant response: We apologize for the issues you had with these panels, and we'd like to help. Please look for an email from a member of our Customer Care Team who will be in touch to further assist you.

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.

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.
