Are you frustrated with the quality of many wood panels? Compared with other raw surfaces on the market, Ampersand's Unprimed Basswood painting panel is free of plywood seams, knots or troublesome raised fibers providing the cleaner, more professional look that artists want.
The Unprimed Basswood panel is handcrafted using a sturdy, non-flexible 4mm basswood top, sanded perfectly smooth and ready to seal and prime with the ground of your choice. Basswood is a premium, select wood that outperforms the typically used birch plywood in many ways. It is inherently smoother with a tight wood grain and no raised fibers, making it easier to gesso and paint on. Basswood is ultra-stable and will not give, bend or flex.
Available in two standard cradled profiles, 7/8" and 1-1/2", both are simple to hang or frame. The support frames are made with quality solid wood strips that can be finished with paint or stain. The cradled back allows you to attach hanging hardware and display your artwork easily - without a frame!
Unprimed Basswood is great for encaustic, mixed media, collage and wood engraving. The tight grain of the Ampersand Unprimed Basswood panels makes them the preferred choice for finely detailed wood burning / pyrography.
