Over the centuries wood panels have provided artists with an enduring surface and have enabled them to use a wide range of materials and techniques. Art Panels are constructed with Old World care and attention to detail with the latest advances in wood technologies to create the finest support for painting. To make these panels, they begin with a solid core plywood that is constructed from Northwest Aspen trees. The top veneer of plywood is one continuous piece of maple without seams, cracks, voids or knots. This plywood is far superior to anything found in a home center. Art Panels have a low formaldehyde outgassing of .04 parts per million. These panels are made ecologically and structurally sound by using a strand layer as one of the inner plys made from recycled materials that offer great strength against warpage. These panels are great for encaustic, casein, egg tempera, cold wax mediums and collage. Art Panels open up new creative possibilities limited only by our imagination. Easy to hang with or without a frame. Each panel has two "key slot" grooves which allows the panel to hang either horizontally or vertically.
