Panelli A Gesso - Gessoed Panels - From a superb natural wood called Pioppo which has excellent strength, even in large sizes. The Old World acid-free gesso has a matte, buffed appearance and is much more absorbent than other gesso panels using traditional gesso primers. Available in two distinct surfaces; one is similar to a cold pressed watercolor sheet, the other is smooth for fine details.
Panelli A Olio - Oil Primed Panels - Made with an oil priming using an old world recipe, these panels have a lovely finish very similar to a cold pressed watercolor surface. This surface allows the oil colorist to paint in heavy layers since the surface texture grips paint.
Panelli Telati - Canvas Mounted Panels Crafted on 3.2 mm thick, non-directional composite hardboard. Paneli Telati boards are mounted with 100% cotton, acid-free all media primed canvas. Sold in 4 Packs.
"The Panelli A Gesso Cold Pressed Panels were great to work with! I especially liked the light weight of these panels despite their somewhat large size. The balance allowed me to move the panels with ease building a creative interpretion of a lost soul. Each piece began with the tin photo seen near the center of the artwork. The collage was built very slowly one piece at a time taking on the intense concentration of what I imagined a brain surgeon might experience.
Artistic details became muddled much as I visualize the life of the child. Often it was the mishaps that made me rethink my original direction. Each piece seemed to take on a spirit of its own. As I continued to work, I became more and more confident in the strength of the Panelli substrate and was encouraged to add more objects to the piece. Adding torn cane from an old rocking chair, a broken antique glass piece, dried roses and other objects, each addition became as much a focal point as the photo itself."
