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).

Our preferred logistics supplier is Australia Post. Occasionally the weight or dimensions of your parcel exceed the restrictions applied by Australia Post. Our preferred logistics provider then is Toll. Depending on the contents of the parcels varying surcharges may apply to the shipping applied to your order. For example Dangerous Goods classified products or products over 1.5 metres in length will incur a minimum surcharge of $60.

Paper is a fragile product, and our goal is to ensure it arrives to you safely. Extra packing will be used to ship it safely and although we do not charge for this, there may be an increase in logistics charges. We recommend that you consider purchasing a minimum of 5 sheets or pack quantities to both save on purchase price and shipping charges.

We aim to make the shipping charge as cost effective as possible and to ensure you receive your art supplies in good condition. Please review our complete Shipping Policy information from the link in the footer for more details.
