Multimedia Artboard accepts both oil and water-based paints without buckling or warping. A new formulation of artboard, it is made with paper and thermal-set epoxy resin, allowing media to adhere to the surface without penetration. No priming required, usable on both sides (one side is slightly smoother tan the other). Holds a nice edge without bleeding.
This artboard is very receptive to encaustic paints. However, it is thin and somewhat flexible and will require mounting to a thicker board to make it more rigid if used for encaustic painting.
The surface can be erased, scraped, and sanded, and both front and back are usable surfaces (one side is smoother than the other). Multimedia Artboard is laboratory-tested and is rated archival quality, with a neutral pH factor of 6.5. Boards are 1/32" (approximately 0.8 mm) thick.
