Ampersand Museum Series Aquabord is an acid-free textured clay surface that absorbs watercolors like a fine paper. Ampersand Museum Series Claybord is a similar surface but smoother to better serve watercolour artists who prefer hot press surfaces. Colors retain their purity and vibrancy in a way that even the finest of watercolor papers can't match. When compared with watercolor paper, this multimedia panel simulates the absorbency and texture of cold pressed, but allows color to be lifted back to white easily while also leaving the richest, most vibrant color possible. This workable surface provides natural looking highlights, fluid glazes, transparent subtle layers, and the ability to lift color while the surface is wet or even after it is dry. Uniquely absorbent Aquabord is perfect for watercolors and gouache, but is also ideal for casein and acrylics. Will not tear, shrink or buckle even under heavy water application. Archival, eco-friendly and made in North America.

Seal finished watercolors or gouache with several light coats of spray varnish (or fixative), being careful to spray outdoors during warmer months or in a well ventilated and heated area during colder times of the year. We recommend the Krylon® UV Archival varnishes. These spray varnishes offer advanced non-yellowing protection against fading, dirt, moisture and discoloration. For additional protection against scratches during transport and also ultraviolet light, follow the application of Krylon® spray varnish with Golden® Polymer UVLS varnish. 1- 4 coats brushed-on provides a very durable archival finish and is also removable for conservation purposes.

Product Information

Aquabord is available in a 1/8in flat panel for standard framing behind glass and in a 7/8in or 1.5in cradle profile for either frameless presentation or for use with floater frames. The 2in Deep Cradle eliminates the need for framing altogether. Stain, paint or wax the cradle edges and eliminate the cost of framing altogether!

Helpful Tips:

For best results, it’s a good idea to first “flush out” the surface of the panel with water using a large flat watercolor brush to release trapped air. Once the surface is slightly damp, it is ready to use. Rewetting may be needed as you work. Note that heavy water applications may release more air. Use a blow dryer to dry and also to dissipate air if needed. Enjoy this unique paper-like finish and create brilliant watercolors!
