Description

Museum Series Aquabord™ is an acid-free textured clay surface that absorbs watercolours like a fine paper. Colours retain their purity and vibrancy in a way that even the finest of watercolour papers can never match. When compared with watercolour paper, this multimedia panel simulates the absorbency and texture of cold pressed, but allows colour to be lifted back to white easily while also leaving the richest, most vibrant colour possible. This workable surface provides natural looking highlights, fluid glazes, transparent subtle layers, and the ability to lift color while the surface is wet or even after it is dry. Uniquely absorbent Aquabord is perfect for watercolours and gouache, but is also ideal for casein and acrylics. Will not tear, shrink or buckle even under heavy water application. Archival, eco-friendly and made in the USA.

  • Disappointed.

    Having seen this product for the first time in your Spring/Summer catalogue, I researched it on the Web to see the manufacturer's comments, which I found quite interesting. My comments are as follows - 1) They state that colours are brighter than on paper - I disagree 2) Colours can be removed easily, even back to white - I disagree - colours can be reduced, but I failed to get back to white. 3) I found it very difficult to paint on by my usual methods and had to use strong colour to stay on the board. It was difficult to do washes to look smooth and I was unable to achieve what I can do easily on my usual art paper. 4) If you try to mix colours on the board, it becomes 'milky' through lifting the clay surface I found the product to be less 'amazing' than the manufacturers and was disappointed with it.

  • Great product!

    I think this is a really great product and even better than watercolour paper to work on, has all the good points but none of the bad IMHO. It is so easy to remove if required and seems to work so well in the normal way.

    I only gave it 4 stars as it works out rather expensive compared to watercolour paper or card.

  • Lovely surface

    I’m not a fan of paper for watercolour art. I love the aquabord and use this all the time for my watercolour paintings now. It is very different from watercolour paper, but it suits my style.
