Hardbord is the perfect surface for those who prefer to create their own grounds and unique textures. It is a 1/8" thick tempered wood panel that is prepared without the traditional oil tempering process. This creates more strength and permanence than when using un-tempered or conventional hardboard.
Ampersand Hardbord accepts grounds for oils, acrylics, egg tempera, encaustic and gold leaf, with no warping, cracking, bending or preparation required.
Choose from a 1/8" flat panel, or mounted versions in depths of 3/4" and 2". The mounted panels are glued flush with a birch plywood support, providing extra support while giving the panel depth and dimension. Leave the wood sides exposed to help frame your work, or treat easily with wood stain, gesso or paint.
