Description

Ampersand Museum Series Claybord™ is made using 1/8" true artist hardboard and features Ampersand’s simply amazing kaolin clay ground formula similar in paintability to the clay gesso grounds used during the Renaissance. The surface is sanded to an ULTRA-smooth, highly absorbent finish so your paint colours remain true and brilliant. Work the surface by thinly applying paint or ink, then remove it, reapply it, even scratch through it to add contrast, texture and fine details. Ampersand Claybord is a favourite of both fine and graphic artists.

  • Exciting - so smooth to draw on and to paint on.

    These clay surfaces are close to perfection. Easy to draw on and paint with amazing reflective surfaces that make the paint glow. I have been testing Golden paints on clay and am very happy with these boards - which can be scratched to great effect. If you Use Golden with water and scratch with your fingernail you end up with white or tallow grasses and chalk landscapes. Will update when testing finished.

  • Perfect for Airbrush Painting

    The smooth surface is ideal for fine Airbrush work , not too absorbent allowing erasing techniques and particularly good fro scratching.
