Fisher Wells Seamless Painting PanelsRegular price $15.11 Save Liquid error (snippets/product-template line 131): Computation results in '-Infinity'%
The Seamless Painting Panels are made into a three-dimensional box-like structure using a unique and registered design. The design ensures that the panels are geometrically accurate, and create an aesthetically appealing panel that appears to be without joins or seams. The panels are made with 6mm EO grade fibreboard, with a popular side depth of 32mm, light to hold and hang, and are ready for you to apply the ground of your choice.
The panels are individually shrink-wrapped to protect the surface for delivery. As with any other timber panels, once an artwork is finished it is good practice to seal the back of the panel with shellac or an acrylic sealer. This will help protect the panel for years to come. As with any other support structures for painting and drawing, i.e. paper, canvas, etc., they should not be kept in a moist environment.
Fisher Wells Traditional Gesso PanelRegular price $13.43 Save Liquid error (snippets/product-template line 131): Computation results in '-Infinity'%
Fisher and Wells have created one of the only traditional gesso ground boards on the market. Experience the beautiful, intensely receptive surface of a genuine gesso surface preparation. The fine grain, absorbency, and control that a genuine gesso can give is quite unparalleled. Prepared carefully using traditional techniques, the gesso is made as it has been done for centuries, with just gelatin glue (also known as hide glue) and English whiting (calcium carbonate). Seven coats are applied to prepare each board with a final sanding of the surface to achieve an ivory like painting and drawing surface for perfect mark making.
All the panels use ecofriendly, ultra-low emission EO grade fibreboard and the surface is suitable for most painting and drawing techniques including the demanding requirements of Silverpoint and Egg Tempera. This is not just an acrylic paint pretending to be gesso. This is where tradition meets your creativity.
Available in 4x5 inch (102mm x 127mm - 3mm thickness) - 5x7 inch (127mm x 178mm - 6mm thickness) - 8x10 inch (203mm x 254mm - 6mm thickness).
French Cleats - Packet of 6Regular price $2.65 Save Liquid error (snippets/product-template line 131): Computation results in '-Infinity'%
French cleats are the simplest way to hang a light flat panel onto a wall for invisible float mounting. Two French cleats are used in the process – one cleat is attached to the wall, and a second matching cleat is glued to the panel. Once the glue is dry, the board is hung by sliding the cleat attached to the board onto the cleat attached to the wall. Gravity does the rest creating a snug, precise fit. French cleat packs are available in sets of 6. They are constructed of MDF and are 6mm thick. They support a maximum weight of 500grams.
1. Position and then glue the cleat to the back of the panel. Make sure the narrow face of the cleat is glued to the board and is exactly parallel to the top of the panel. This will create a narrow angle between the bottom of the cleat and the board.
2. The matching cleat is positioned and then attached with a suitable fastener set flush to the face of the cleat, make sure the narrow face of the cleat is level and securely attached to the wall – creating a narrow angle between the top of the cleat and the wall.
3. After the glue from step one is dry, fit the panel onto the wall. The panel cleat will fit neatly above the wall cleat for a secure hang.
