The #1 panel for Oils and Acrylics!

gessobord

  • Superior quality artist grade gesso
  • Slight, even texture for ideal brush control
  • Smooth finishes / even tonal values — excellent for portraits and detail work!
  • Can hold heavy applications of paint without the “bounce” of canvas.
  • Surface texture does not become a distracting part of your image.

It’s true. Museum Series Gessobord is the most trusted pre-gessoed wood panel by artists for their work. The superior quality acrylic gesso ground does not dull colors 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. Perfect for all painting styles with oil paints, acrylics and mixed media. 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. Choose from 3/4", 1.5" and 2" Deep, all made in the USA.

Now available in a 1.5" profile

Ampersand Gessobord is now available in a 1.5" Cradle Profile that offers more flexibility to artists for hanging and framing their work. Featuring a 1.5" total depth, this new cradle profile is handcrafted with premium grade 13-ply birch plywood, designed to fit both standard canvas and floater frames. The cradle can easily be painted or stained to complement the artwork or primed with gesso to wrap the image around the edges. Other available options include a 1/8" flat panel, ¾" standard cradle, and 2" deep cradle that offers support and presentation all in one.

Why Choose Ampersand?

No other panel on the market protects an artist’s work like an Ampersand panel. Every Gessobord panel is protected by our proprietary Archival-Seal barrier technology, the most advanced formula for sealing wood that prevents support induced discoloration. Only Ampersand uses true high-density hardboard made from US-grown and renewable Aspen wood fibers. Gessobord is archival, eco-friendly and formaldehyde-free.
