Full Range of Premium Quality Art Boards that are handmade here at our Retail Store in Melbourne that come in a wide range of shapes, surfaces and sizes.
We stock a huge range , including Raw Birch for the Artist that wants a nice blond, wooden grain covered board.
Hardwood boards are similar to Birch and are perfect for the artist that wants a bare hardwood timber background for their Art especially great for drawing, fine liner, paint that still shows some of the board.
One of our most popular ones is our Primed Round and Rectangle, Square & Hexagon. These have been double primed and sanded between coats to ensure a smooth finish. Our painting panels, sometimes referred to as wooden painting panels, wooden canvas, art panels and birch art panel, are suitable for pouring of resin, as the timber top won’t sag causing the resin to pool. And also suitable for acrylics, oils, watercolours, flow mediums and other media.
If you are after a certain size or shape, that we don’t have listed… don’t worry because we can make basically any Custom Art Board you are after! Just send an email into email@example.com of what you are after.
MDF coasters and placemats are also something we stock for you. They are a great cheaper alternative to the primed boards and can work great with any art medium you are using.
The Alcohol Ink Boards we hand-make have been made with the Alcohol Ink artist in mind. With these you don’t need to stick large Yupo paper sheets down trying to get rid of bubbles, the Aluminium Composite Panel acts very similarly to Yupo Paper and is a non porous surface. We have White gloss and Black gloss available in many different sizes & shapes. Also available are smaller Square & Round coasters that are also made for Alcohol Ink art.
For stepping out of your comfort zone, maybe creating something with our Puzzle piece set, Mini painting panels or our beautiful Wooden Letters are the way to go!
Alcohol Ink Art Boards
These art boards have been designed and tested with the Alcohol ink artist in mind.
Many artists complain about the process of sticking large sheets of Yupo to a board and trying not to get bubbles or creases. The easiest way to solve this is to do away with the Yupo paper all together.
These art boards feature a white or Black gloss 3mm Aluminium composite panel top that behaves very similar to Yupo paper when using alcohol inks. Another feature of the non porous surface is if you don’t like your artwork you can remove it with isopropyl and start again.
Sealing your art work requires the same products as sealing it on Yupo paper.
The Frame is constructed from kiln dried pine with a side depth of 42mm plus the 3mm top.
The edges have been sanded beautify smooth and flush to give a clean professional finish which can be left raw or enhanced with a clear finish or painted if you wish.
