Performs Like a Panel, Feels Like Canvas. Get more control over your paint application and truer brighter colors with Ampersand's Artist Panel - Primed Canvas Texture, a high-quality painting panel primed with acid-free acrylic gesso. The ready-to-paint surface is like a gessoed canvas in texture, appearance and absorbency, giving artists the familiar feel of a fine linen or canvas with the additional advantage of painting on a rigid surface. The durable, rigid, medium density fiberboard (MDF) support makes the Primed Canvas Texture panel ideal for palette-knife painting and multimedia applications. These wood panels will not give, bend or flex.
