I love this product and think a lot of artists don't even know about it so here is some info on some of the surfaces they sell!



Value Series Artist Panel™ with Standard Canvas Texture


Do you want more control over your paint applications and brighter truer colors? Then try the Artist Panel™, a top quality MDF panel sealed with acid-free acrylic gesso with added canvas texture. Perfect with oil paints and acrylics, the ready-to-paint canvas-like texture gives artists all the advantages of painting on panel, but with the familiar feel of a fine linen or canvas. The durable rigid medium density fiberboard support makes the Artist Panel ideal for palette-knife painting and multi-media applications. Available in a 9mm panel with hanging slots on the back, a ¾" and a 1.5" cradled profile. The cradle support frames are hand made using 1/2” birch plywood offering maximum stability and support. Value Series Artist Panel™

• Medium canvas texture for optimum paint control

• Ampersand quality at an affordable price

Many Fine Art and Craft Uses:

• Ready to paint with oils, acrylics and mixed media

Value Series Artist Panel™ Unprimed Basswood


The Unprimed Basswood panel is handcrafted using a non-flexible basswood top, sanded perfectly smooth and ready to seal and prime with the ground of your choice. Compared with other wood panels on the market, the Unprimed Basswood is sanded perfectly smooth and lacks plywood seams, knots or raised fibers providing the cleaner, more professional look artists’ want. The support frames are made with quality solid pine strips that can be finished with paint or stain. Unprimed Basswood is great for encaustic, mixed media, collage and wood engraving.
All wood should be sealed and primed. For instructions, visit www.sealandprime.com
