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, or 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.

1/8" Flat Panel - These flat, un-cradled panels are ideal for plein air painting for their sturdy portability. The edges are cleanly finished and ready to pop into a frame.

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.
