Claybord is a versatile panel and is a favourite of both fine and graphic artists. It features a velvety smooth and extremely absorbent clay finish to which no other surface compares. This kaolin clay ground formula is very similar to the clay gesso grounds used during the Renaissance period and is the best choice for traditional egg tempera. But is also great to use for acrylics, collage, pencil, oils, pens, airbrush, photo-transfer, casein, watercolour, gouache…… the list could go on. It is a very versatile board for all artists.
The unique kaolin clay surface is 7 – 10mm thick, allowing for unlimited techniques including; etching, erasing, reworking, adding colour and scratching.
