Ideal for watercolors, Aquabord stimulates the absorbency and texture of cold pressed watercolor paper but with significant advantages. The clay coated hardboard panel holds colors in suspension, allowing them to flow into each other to create seamless washes with rich, vibrant color.
Colors can easily be lifted off of the surface and it will never buckle or warp. Aquabord’s re-workable surface provides natural looking highlights, fluid glazes and transparent subtle layers. Finished works can even be sealed with fixative and displayed without glass!
Choose from a 1/8" flat panel, or a mounted version in a depth of 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.
In sizes ranging from 4" x 4" to 22" x 30"
