Craft Panels are used by a wide variety of artists with almost endless applications. They can be used for Painting, Sign Making, Art Mounting and so much more.
CRAFT PANEL DESCRIPTION:
ACMS Craft Panels definitely lead the pack by providing the highest quality panels, the best designs and the best value overall.
The single piece construction of our panels makes them stronger, more stable and with much cleaner edges than the competition. Integrated reliefs make for a stronger panel and eliminate warping or cupping. Built-In Keyhole Supports allow you to hang your panel in any direction or angle....securely.
But aside from the obvious reasons our panels are better....we offer something no one else does....Framing Options specifically designed for each panel shape and size.
Every ACMS Craft Panel has built-in threaded inserts located in the back of the panel. These inserts align perfectly with our ACMS Craft Floater Frames for easy framing and perfect alignment of your work.
Note that our Craft Panels do not require framing.....but the option is there if you want it.
CRAFT PANEL CONSTRUCTION:
These POPLAR panels are made from solid material 3/4" thick. The core of the panels are 5/16" thick (almost 3x thicker than other panels). Panels are sanded to 320 grit....it is up to the craftsperson to prepare the surface for their application.
POPLAR panels are good for painting (oil based, water based, acrylic etc) but each artist needs to decide their own method of work. You can Prime your board, you can Gesso it or do whatever else you want....our boards will accept just about anything you do.
If you are into Pyrography (wood burning)...Poplar panels are what you need. Never burn Fiberboard (it will release harmful fumes).
Fun fact....the Mona Lisa (Portrait of Lisa Gherardini) by Leonardo da Vinci was painted on a poplar panel. Poplar has been popular for painting for quite some time and holds up very well.
