Derivan Wood Painting panels are excellent for the beginner, hobbyist or the experienced artist looking for an affordable and stable substrate for studies, experiments or final artworks requiring a professional finish. Classic wood panels are ideal for delicate media like egg tempera, encaustic, frescoes or traditional acrylic, oils, collage, pastels, charcoal, graphite or a combination of these. Their stability and smoothness is perfect for mounting art paper for watercolour painting or for finished watercolour artworks, prints and drawings.
While a primer is not necessary for certain media applications, the panels can be sealed and primed with any suitable ground like acrylic gesso, traditional gesso and rabbit skin glue or any other primer and texture paste. The smoothness and depth of the wood frame allows the finished artwork to be hung directly on a wall without the need for framing. Derivan Wood Painting Panels feature a high quality 3mm sanded birch surface finished by a solid pine wood frame. The surface and frame have been carefully sanded to achieve a level of smoothness ideal for detailed work.
