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.

Panel painting is not a new painting practice, it is actually very old. Although used extensively in Greece, Egypt and Rome, as early as the 6th century, very few examples of ancient panel painting have survived. Wood has always been considered the normal support for icons of Byzantine art and later Orthodox traditions, which have the oldest panel paintings recorded, until canvas became a popular support medium in the 16th century. The two techniques more often used on wood in antiquity were Encaustic and Tempera.

Changed church practices (mainly the distribution of the congregation and priest on the same side of the altar) towards the 1200 caused a revival of panel painting. This new allocation of lithurgy within the church space, created an opportunity to display and hang icons or similar religious art behind the altar, ie: double-sided wing altar pieces like the Ghent Altarpiece by Jan van Eyck,1432.
