Designed for the Demands of Encaustic
A specially formulated gesso forms a bright, velvety surface on warp-resistant Hardbord™ that is ready to use for encaustic painting. The ground is heat resistant, highly absorbent, and holds tight to layers of wax without the fear of cracking or separation.
Museum Series Encausticbord is a finely textured, highly absorbent panel formulated for the unique demands of encaustic painting and mixed media. Encausticbord is made from Ampersand's premium warp-resistant 1/8" profile FSC-certified Hardbord™ that is protected with their proprietary Archiva-Seal™ and coated with a specially formulated gesso to form a bright, velvety surface that is ready to use for encaustic painting. Encausticbord is a collaboration between R&F Handmade Paints and Ampersand Art Supply.
