Ampersand Aquabord an Alternative to Cold Press

Have you tried Ampersand Aquabord?


Ampersand ™ Aquabord ™ is a unique alternative to traditional watercolor paper. Aquabord is made using a hardboard panel and is coated with a textured clay surface that absorbs watercolors like fine paper. In fact, the acid-free panel simulates the absorbency and texture of cold pressed watercolor paper. Unlike traditional watercolor paper it will not tear, shrink or buckle even if you use a lot of water. Because it is so durable you can glaze and lift as many times as you need without damaging the surface. You can even lift colors after they are dry. Aquabord is great for watercolors and gouache as well as casein and acrylics. To present your finished piece without glass, seal your work with a spray fixative (Ampersand recommends using Krylon UV Archival varnishes).

And it's made in the USA!
