My icon boards are gessoed Russian birch panels, 3/4" thick. The surface is prepared by hand, with at least 5 coats of Golden Sandable Hard Gesso before sanding smooth, ready for painting and gilding. The back is drilled with a keyhole slot for easy hanging, and showcases the beautiful birch grain under a satin varnish. The edges are painted with traditional red oxide. These boards are suitable for any painting media except egg tempera.
Please inquire about larger sizes, custom sizes, or larger orders.
