Gesso panels made in Italy suitable for a wide variety of techniques thanks to the high absorbancy of the surface. They are handmade and finished with a smooth surface. The 7mm thick wooden base is poplar multi-ply which is stable and lightfast.

??Made with acrylic gesso these ultra-smooth boards are very absorbent and you may wish to use extra oil in your oil paint. ??But, they may not be absorbent enough for use with egg tempera which usually needs genuine gesso (homemade with rabbit skin glue and whiting). ??If the surface isn't absorbent enough the egg tempera paint may lift off the first layer when you apply a second glaze.

I have so far painted the edges as these panels will need to be framed. The Gallery that represents me prefers the frames that leave a small gap between the pointing and the frame. Each surface has at least one minor divot, observed when I opening the cellophane wrap, so I will need to plan around that in composing my paintings. I am curious as to the ease of painting, and look forward to trying the smooth surface.
