Painting Panels.jpg


Rigid 3mm pine panels, mounted on 17mm deep braces. Suitable for all media, sealing with an acrylic polymer such as GAC100 is recommended. Larger sizes are cross-braced on the reverse for greater strength. Available in square, round and rectangular formats in a variety of sizes.



The Caravaggio range of Italian cottons and linens is very popular. With good reason: they're versatile, high quality and represent great value.  Caravaggio cottons and linens have been milled in Varese, Italy for over 30 years. Available in a range of styles, colours and widths, the Caravaggio collection is prepared with a layer of clear-primer, and three layers of universal primer. The universal-primed surface is suitable for both oils and acrylics. Caravaggio's clear-primed surface as a great alternative to rabbit skin glue.


This HD profile is manufactured from Victorian Ash and selected for its fine-grained, kiln-dried timber because it keeps its integrity. Victorian Ash is more resistant to changes in humidity than pine, and less likely to warp.
