A Creative Collaboration between Ampersand™ and R&F Handmade Paints began in 2008 when the two manufacturers, authorities in their respective fields of wood painting panels and encaustic paint colors, started working together to dream up the perfect surface for encaustic paints. This combination of Ampersand’s archival panel coating technology and R&F’s expertise in encaustics lead to Encausticbord™, a unique wood panel that has the tooth to hold encaustic and mixed media unlike any other surface.
Through months of exhaustive research and testing, Ampersand™ and R&F ensured that encaustic paints adhered exceptionally well to the painting ground and that Encausticbord™ was the most archival and dimensionally stable panel available. The ultimate goal was to provide a surface that would give encaustic artists the opportunity to expand their artistic voice. With Encausticbord™, artists have the freedom to use encaustics in combination with other mediums without the fear that their panel will not stand up to the unique demands of mixed-media applications.
Only Encausticbord™ has a ready to use surface formulated for the unique demands of encaustic painting and mixed media. Encaustic gesso is applied to Ampersand’s sealed Hardbord™ panel to form a bright, smooth and velvety surface that is ready to use with the ancient technique of encaustic painting. The ground is not only heat resistant and highly absorbent, but also holds tight to layers of wax and collage without the fear of cracking or separation.Ampersand Encausticbord, Flat 1/8" Panel
