Ampersand Museum Series Claybord features a kaolin clay ground formula similar in paintability to the clay gesso grounds used during the Renaissance. The surface is sanded to an ultra-smooth, highly absorbent finish so your paint colors remain true and brilliant.

Claybord is a favorite of both fine and graphic artists. Archival, lightfast, and acid free, the panels are great for acrylics, airbrush, casein, egg tempera, inks, oils, printmaking, graphic media and calligraphy, graphite and colored Pencils and more. Paints may be applied with brushes, sponges, paper towels, bristle brushes, airbrushes and more. Work the surface by thinly applying paint or ink, then remove it, re-apply it, even scratch through it to add contrast, texture and fine details.

Claybord is available in a 1/8" flat panel, a 3/4" Cradle or with a 2" Deep Cradle.

3/4" Cradled - Available with a 3/4" cradle for hanging with no additional framing. Edges are sanded, so you can apply your favorite ground to create an extra dimensional painting.

2" Deep Cradled - The innovative and elegant cradles provide extra support and presentation all in one. The Deep Cradle panels come with 2" birch plywood strips that are attached flush with the back edge of each panel. The plywood sides may be stained, painted, gessoed, waxed or left unfinished to customize and enhance your work.

Company Info

In 1994, Ampersand Art Supply began their mission of reviving the time-honored tradition of panel painting with the creation of Claybord, their very first coated painting panel. Claybord was originally invented by Colorado artist, Charles Ewing, who partnered with Ampersand to develop it further and see its commercial success. Today, Charles is still instrumental in their product development and testing. Over the years, Ampersand has added many wonderful painting panels with unique surface coatings and profiles suitable for all media from oils to pastels.

Green is more than just a choice. Eco-friendly, artist safe Ampersand panels are made from FSC certified sustainable US forest products. They use completely green manufacturing processes that protect the natural environment. No harmful chemicals, no dangerous emissions for artists. A smart choice.

Ampersand is committed first and foremost to supporting artists in their creative process by providing surfaces that are not only a joy to paint and create on, but that will also withstand the test of time. Ampersand’s commitment to quality and archival principles led them to engineer the only archival sealed panels on the market today. Ampersand panels are made with conservator quality wood materials and sealing processes. Only Ampersand uses Archival-Seal technology for sealing wood correctly. Look for the Archiva-Seal logo on every coated Ampersand Series Panel.

Artists using the full range of panels from Claybord to Gessobord to the Artist Panel can rest assured that every step has been taken to ensure quality and performance. Ampersand’s passion is panel painting and they are passionate about our products. Ampersand's signature painting surfaces inspire great art in every medium from oil to watercolors.
