Belle Arti Gesso Panels are handmade in Italy, they are suitable for a wide variety of techniques including oil, acrylic, pencil, gouache, watercolour and ink. Belle Arti Gesso Panels are perfect for a broad variety of techniques. Handmade, and finished with a smooth polished surface, they are great to work on with encaustics paints, acrylics, pencil, oil painting, paintsticks, even watercolours or ink. The fine surface gives a beautiful surface for detail. Made from traditional techniques by Italian artisans, these boards are great value and also present well without the cost of framing. 

The extremely stable 7.5mm thick poplar plywood base is finished with a very smooth, absorbent acrylic gesso surface. The fine surface is ideal for detailed work, it is a bright yet natural white which is refractive and works wonders with layers of transparent paints and glazing.

They gesso panels are very absorbent so you may wish to use extra oil if using oil paint. These panels may not be absorbent enough for use with egg tempera which usually needs genuine gesso (made with rabbit skin glue and whiting). If the surface isn’t absorbent enough the egg tempera paint may lift off the first layer when you apply a second glaze. Please ask our friendly staff at The PaintBox for guidance.

Also available in boxes of 10 with an extra discount.
