Artist painting panels treated with an ultra-smooth, absorbent, clay ground.

Ampersand Museum Series Claybord is made from warp-resistant 1/8" profile FSC-certified Hardbord, coated with an acid-free kaolin clay ground. The ultra-smooth, absorbent clay surface allows for unlimited techniques.


About the Claybord surface

The ultra-smooth, absorbent finish means your paint colours will remain true and brilliant. Work the surface by thinly applying paint or ink, then remove it, re-apply it, even scratch through it to add contrast, texture and fine details. Claybord is a favourite of both fine and graphic artists.

With Claybord, paints and inks can be manipulated to vary tonal value, create detail and to develop highlights and correct mistakes. Various artist tools can be used such as Ampersand scratchboard tools, hobby knives, razor blades, etching tools, sand paper, oil-free steel wool, and electric erasers. Claybord's clay coating allows for the use of sgraffito techniques to cut into the surface and re-expose the white clay ground. The coating is 7 to 1 dry-mils thick allowing for multiple cut-ins or erasers.

Claybord is also an excellent printing surface and can also be used for image transfers.

About Hardbord

Claybord is made from premium, warp-resistant, FSC-certified Hardbord, the most stable substrate on the market for your artwork. The Hardbord is sealed and protected with Ampersand's proprietary Archiva-Seal™ barrier technology to prevent yellowing.

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. Cradles can easily be painted or stained to complement the artwork or primed with gesso to wrap the image around the edges.

Specifications:

  • Great for use with ink, graphite, acrylic, gouache, collage, egg tempera, airbrush, and more!
  • Seal and frame without glass!
  • Similar to chalk/gypsum gessoed panels of the Renaissance used for egg tempera and oils
  • pH neutral, acid-free clay coating
