A classic wood painting panel suitable for a variety of painting and drawing media and techniques. The stable and rigid surface is a great support for mounting prints, photographs, canvas or other mixed-media works.
These Wood Painting Panels feature a high quality 3mm sanded birch surface finished by a solid pine wood frame. They are ideal for delicate media like egg tempera, encaustic, frescoes or traditional acrylic, oils, collage, pastels, charcoal, graphite or a combination of these.
While a primer is not necessary for certain media applications, the panels can be sealed and primed with any suitable ground like acrylic gesso, traditional gesso and rabbit skin glue or any other primer and texture paste.
Wood is highly sensitive to fluctuations in temperature and moisture levels, which can make it susceptible to cracking. The extent of this sensitivity varies based on the surrounding environment.
To ensure the longevity and resilience of your wooden panels, we recommend taking precautionary measures. Before applying gesso or any other artistic medium, it is crucial to seal both sides of the panel with a high-quality clear sealer. This proactive step acts as a protective barrier, guarding against potential cracking caused by changes in atmospheric conditions.
By incorporating this simple yet crucial pre-treatment, you enhance the durability of the wooden panels, providing a stable canvas for your artistic expression. This attention to detail not only preserves the natural beauty of the wood but also ensures that your artwork stands the test of time.
The wooden round is nicely finished, well priced and I have just painted it for a client. The paint is drying nicely and I look forward to resining this piece.
