Square and Golden Art Panels are made by a unique process where a single piece of 6mm FSC® certified MDF board is routered and folded up around an FSC certified finger jointed Spruce sub-frame.
This process has two main advantages: firstly that there are no actual joins on the facing edges of the panel; and second, that the box structure of the MDF has incredible strength even without the sub-frame, while retaining very light weight.
The reverse of the panels are primed with white undercoat to prevent moisture ingress on the back.
Traditional Gesso Panels are finished on the front and sides with a traditional rabbit skin glue based Gesso recipe which is unlike any other painting surface.
Available S&G Frames:
Every size of Square and Golden Art Panel has a choice of at least two frames: one simple tray frame and one more elaborate tray frame. Frames are all available in either Raw finish or Traditional Gesso finish.
Raw frames are sanded but otherwise left unfinished allowing the user to apply a finish of their choice.
Gessoed frames are ready to have Bole and Gold Leaf applied or to be finished in countless other ways
