Description

Museum Series Gessobord™ by Ampersand is a superior quality preprepared board for painting onto in Acrylic, Oil or in using Mixed Media.

  • The finest quality acrylic gesso is used meaning the ground does not dull colours and the wonderful lightly sanded surface provides exceptional brush control.
  • Made with Ampersand’s 1/8" True Artist Hardboard™ and Archiva-Seal™ technology, the surface is acid-free, non-yellowing, and archival and perfect for all painting styles and approaches.
  • Only Ampersand builds their cradles by hand with premium grade 13-ply birch plywood for maximum stability and a clean, finished look from edge to edge.

These prepared painting surfaces from Ampersand are available in a wide range of sizes, ranging from; 12.7 x 17.8cm (5 x 7”) through to 45.7 x 60.1cm (18 x 24”) and in three different depths of 3mm (1/8"), 2.2cm (7/8") and 3.8cm (1.5")

Q&A (3)
Q Why work on wooden panel as oppose to canvas?
A

Paintings on wooden panel are easier to conserve and offer a longer lasting and more rigid surface to paint on than canvas stretched on a frame. This hardness offers superior line control and support, and colour vibrancy is stronger as the colour reflects off the surface as oppose to absorbing into the weave of the canvas.

Q What is Gessobord?
A

Gessobord is a wooden panel with a primed surface which offers a firm, archival surface for painting that will not yellow over time. This board has a slight grain, but can be sanded down should you prefer a smoother surface.

Q Would this gessobord need framing?
A

The gessobord doesn't need to be framed. The cradled ones can be directly hung onto the wall. However, it's down to your personal preference how you want to present it. All Ampersand standard size panels generally fit into pre-made frames. If you didn't want to frame your gessobord or you were framing without glass, you should always varnish it to protect it from the elements.

15th May 2021 Reviewed by Rebecca Byrne The product is fine, but it arrived damaged and getting it addresses was impossible. No response to my emails. Then, when I call, no answer. Another email finally gets a response and they say they don’t see any emails from me and ask me to resend the old emails and images.

21st April 2021 Reviewed by David Bartlett Painting using oils. Good if a flat firm surface is preferred. Good intensity of colour on white gesso ground.
Good quality-strongly made. Potentially vulnerable to wear around sharp right angle edges.

20th April 2016 Reviewed by Julie Westmore I like how this leaves the paint nice and smooth. I find that it absorbs the paint more than a regular canvas so I I find I have to work very quickly

12th March 2016 Reviewed by Jake Spicer I have just started using Gessoboard for oil painting and so far I'm very pleased with the results. I prefer painting on a smooth, hard surface and I've found the Gessoboard to be similar to acrylic gesso which has been sanded down. Although expensive the product has justified it's cost by the quality of its finish and the time it has saved me priming.

25th November 2014 Reviewed by Ashleigh Dueker I am always impressed by Ampersand Gessobords. They have just enough texture on them to hold the paint perfectly. I adore the wooden edging, which always gives my paintings an extra detail I otherwise wouldn't get on canvas. This is the only gessobord I use for my oil paintings going forward.
