|Ampersand Art Supply developed the most advanced formula for sealing wood to ensure that their painting grounds and your artwork remain acid-free over time. In fact, every Ampersand Museum Series panel features their Archiva-seal logo!|
Ampersand's Museum Series painting surfaces are a joy to paint on. They make paint colors brighter and more luminous than paper, canvas or even other panels.
Unlike other hardboards and MDF boards, the Hardbord™ that they use is made without formaldehyde or harmful VOC's (volatile organic compounds). Claybord™, Gessobord™, Encausticbord™, Aquabord™, and Pastelbord™ are all made with grounds that are archival and non-yellowing!
All Museum Series Panels (Claybord™, Gessobord™, Encausticbord™, Aquabord™, Pastelbord™, and Scratchbord™) are made in the USA!
To get all the benefits of an Ampersand Museum Series panel at a greater value, try Ampersand's Value Series Artist Panels. Artist Panels are MDF painting panels featuring an acrylic gesso surface with canvas-like texture that is ideal for oils and acrylics!
