There are many reasons to use cradled boards in your art practice. We’ve compiled a list of four reasons why you should be using a cradled board on your next project. A cradled board is a wooden frame with a board attached to it. They accept almost any medium and are excellent for showcasing detailed artwork. Cradled Boards are ideal for painting, sculpture, mounting, and so much more. The durable wooden structure can prevent paintings from warping over time. They come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you are looking for a cradled board with a 22mm depth or a cradled board that is 38mm deep, there are a variety of sizes out there that will meet your needs.
Some reasons for considering a cradled panel are to prevent warping; having a firm painting surface; as an alternative to a canvas and to they do not require framing. The surface does not flex and is ideal for inflexible media such as gouache and egg tempera.
No other panel on the market protects an artist’s work like an Ampersand panel. Every Gessobord panel is protected by proprietary Archival-Seal barrier technology, the most advanced formula for sealing wood, that prevents support induced discoloration. Only Ampersand uses true high-density hardboard made from US-grown and renewable Aspen wood fibres. Gessobord is archival, eco-friendly and formaldehyde-free.
