Primed and ready for oil paint, oil pastels or acrylic paints without priming or preparation. The natural texture is treated with a high-performance barrier to absorb oil, bonding agents and water evenly.
Canson Art Boards
Now the papers that inspire artists’ work can support it, too. Canson® Art Boards feature a range of best-selling Canson® papers on rigid, archival backing.
Canson art boards provide artists with the benefits of a stiff, strong working surface – with Canson quality paper on top. It’s an exciting innovation to add performance to Canson's most popular papers – a complete range of boards for a variety of media and techniques, from illustration and comic art to drawing, watercolour and pastel. Each board is as rugged as it is beautiful, created to withstand the rigours of repeated watercolour washes or the pressure of building up pastel. Because Canson Art Boards are mounted on white, acid-free, lignin-free, archival conservation board, they are both durable and enduring.
No Mounting Required
Canson art boards are ready for framing without mounting, eliminating a step as well as the added expense. The art finished on acid-free paper is displayed and protected on two-ply, archival Canson conservation board, making self-preservation simple. Buffered, without optical brighteners, and treated to resist mold, the board is compliant to ISO 9706, the standard for permanent paper.
