Spacer 10x10 pixels Dear Artist Daily Subscriber,
A painting or drawing really starts before you ever make a mark because the surface an artist uses can make such a difference in the look and feel of the final product. I’m not super savvy when it comes to all of the possibilities available, so the special supplement on surfaces in the November 2011 issue of American Artist was practically tailor-made for me with information on linen canvas, paper, and boards, plus feedback from practicing artists about the attributes of the surfaces they use. It’s like Consumer Reports, but for artists. Sweet!

Warm Regards,

Courtney

Ampersand Museum Series Gessobord™ –The #1 painting panel for oils and acrylics!

Ampersand Spacer 20x20 pixels
Gessobord™ comes ready to paint featuring a superior quality acrylic gesso ground that is lightly textured for excellent adhesion and paint control. The titanium white surface enhances and brightens paint colors. Made with True Artist Hardboard™ substrate and Archiva-seal™ technology, the surface is acid-free, non-yellowing and archival. Gessobord™ is perfect for oils, acrylics, alkyds, water-based oils and even mixed media. It’s delicate enough for glazing, fluid brush strokes and tight detail, and tough enough for palette knife painting.

Choose from 1/8" flat, 3/4" and 2" DEEP cradle profiles. Handcrafted in Austin, TX.
