New To Stock - Art Alternatives Cradled Wood Panels

More durable than canvas, wood panels resist flexing or warping, making them great for painting, especially thick, heavy applications and palette knife work, as well as encaustic, mixed media and craft use as a shadow box, frame or tray. The 4mm hand-sanded birch wood surface is smooth for detailed work and mounting.


The sturdy pine cradle adds support and allows for hanging without a frame. Available in two profile depths: Studio panels have a 3/4" deep profile and Gallery panels have a 1-1/2" deep profile. We are stocking a large assortment of sizes in both profiles.

It's important to prime and seal wood panels for painting. Looking for advice on prepping wood panels? Read up on the why and how from this article on JustPaint.
