Unprimed pressed wood panels made in USA from quality hardwoods - 1/8 inch flat profile

Build up your own unique painting grounds and textures on this ultra-stable, highly engineered true hardboard support.

  • Unprimed, tempered hardboard wood panels made in the USA
  • Made using quality hardwoods that have more uniform fibers and low acidity in a highly engineered manufacturing process to produce a painting panel that resists warping and moisture penetration
  • Same hardboard panels that Ampersand uses to make its pre-coated Museum Series Gessobord, Aquabord, Claybord and Pastelbord panels
  • Prime with commercial or handmade gesso grounds - acrylic or oil based.
  • Profile: 1/8" flat - choose by size
  • Because of Ampersand's commitment to produce products that don't harm the environment or the artists who use them, all of the hardboard used in the Museum Series Panels (including these Hardbord panels) differs from that used to make some hardboard and MDF board panels on the market in that they are made without formaldehyde and other organic compounds that generate harmful gas emissions (VOCs).
  • All Ampersand Museum Series Panels, including Hardbord, are made from FSC certified forest products. The FSC certification is one of the most effective standards for protecting wildlife, plants, soil and water resources.

More on the History of Hardboard, aka Masonite, and How Today's Modern Manufacturing Processes Make Hardboard a Viable Archival Quality Painting Surface

Ever since the first edition of Ralph Mayer's The Artist's Handbook was published, many artists have read his warning about using "masonite", a brand of hardboard, as a painting surface. At that time, the warning was merited. Today it is not. Read more about how manufacturers have changed their production methods for hardboard to eliminate the adhesion, chipping and fraying problems of the hardboard surfaces commonly used in the 1940's and 1950's when Mayer's book was first published. This article also provides some technical insights into the meticulous detail of Ampersand's engineering process for its Museum Series panels.

    Experience: STUDENT

    I love working with these art boards because they are sturdy, compact, and affordable. When you have to start carrying around several art boards to and from class, these are a lot easier to handle than the thicker wooden panels and canvas'.
