PRIMEWOODtm Superior Wood Panels

By huge popular demand, we are very pleased to offer our new,
moderately priced, advanced design wooden art panels for painters.
PRIMEWOODtm panels are the most archivally durable wood panels ever made.
We use the most stable wood and a revolutionary new kind of primer.
Our primer chemistry and application method provide an impermeable barrier to
tightly seal the wood cells of the panel, greatly increasing the life span of your artwork.
A delight to paint on, our wooden panels are smooth but not slippery,
allowing superb paint handling and precise brush control
without the excessive brush wear caused by so many other primers.
These are wood panels designed for the 21st century – and many more to come.

SOLID GROUNDtm Artist Panels and Pastel Panels

are hand crafted, custom made, art supply panels.
Made especially for discerning users of art supplies,
these uniquely designed panels are composed entirely
of specially selected plastic polymers and fine pigments.
As their name suggests, each one is formed as a solid piece,
rather than as a multi-layered, gesso "ground"-coated board.
SOLID GROUNDtm panels are designed to be exceptionally durable.
Their surfaces are exquisitely responsive to your touch, and bond
tenaciously with your colors. Ordered directly from your panelmaker,
you'll receive panels that are tailor-made to suit your needs and preferences.
For pastel artists, and painters in oil, acrylic, encaustic, egg tempera and more.
