If you want to prepare your own panels, start with unprimed Hardbord. Made in the U.S. from quality hardwoods, this panel resists warping and moisture penetration. Hardbord accepts all types of commercial and handmade gesso grounds. Complete priming instructions inside product labeling.
This deep cradled hardboard comes with a 2" support and is made just like the 3/4" cradled version. The braces are made of birch plywood and provide extra support, allowing you to display a finished work without framing. Many artists prefer these deep cradled panels since they provide a contemporary look to their work.
