Gessobord Basics

Jennifer Philips
Starting Point
mixed media on Gessobord by Jennifer Philips

Museum Series Gessobord™ is the most trusted pre-gessoed wood panel by artists for their work. The coating is 88% thicker than other gessoed panels on the market.
The superior quality acrylic gesso ground does not dull colors, and the wonderful lightly sanded surface provides exceptional brush control. 

Made with true high density hardboard, from US-grown and renewable Aspen wood fibers, and coated with Archiva-Seal™ technology-- the surface is acid-free, non-yellowing, and archival. Every panel is protected by our proprietary Archival-Seal™ barrier technology, the most advanced formula for sealing wood that prevents support induced discoloration. Gessobord is archival, eco-friendly and formaldehyde-free, it doesn't get better than that! 

These panels are perfect for all painting styles with oil paints, acrylics and mixed media. We build our cradles by hand with premium grade 13-ply birch plywood for maximum stability and a clean, finished look from edge to edge. The cradle can easily be painted or stained to complement the artwork or primed with gesso to wrap the image around the edges.
