Watermedia Cradled Birch Panels

These high-quality artist panels use solid wood for the cradle (frame around the back) and 1/8" top-quality birch plywood for the face (surface to be painted). The exclusive water-media treatment used on these panels was created to work beautifully with all water media. The surface is absorbent, durable and lightly textured, but it can also be sanded to be more like hot press paper. No other prep work is required, they are ready for paint. Colors lift easily and also layer beautifully. Your final painting can be protected with many spray varnishes, so there's no need to frame the final work behind glass. Typical usages are watercolors, watercolor pencils, acrylics, gouache and more. Made in the USA.
