Aluminium art panels make even, rigid and lightweight painting surfaces. They offer a great value with a conservation quality stable support. Unlike canvases (with wooden stretcher bars) or wooden panels, aluminium panels are artwork supports that will not release gases over time and will barely react to changes in humidity and temperature. The conservation benefits and archival properties of the metal mean that aluminium art panels can easily be stored in damp studios where traditional painting surfaces would warp.
Areas on the aluminium painting panels can also be left exposed, as the material won’t tarnish due to its resistance to oxidation. The lightweight nature of the aluminium panels makes them ideal for large artworks which need to be transported.
These panels have specially treated surfaces for paint to adhere to. They are ready for use with all types of painting media, including oil, acrylic, watercolour, gouache and ink. Jackson’s Aluminium Panels have a smooth, grey, satin finish, priming is not necessary but they can easily be primed with any of the Jackson’s primers should a different colour be preferred. Jackson’s Aluminium Panels are the perfect solution for those who like to paint on ultra smooth, hard surfaces. The smooth panel means that paint can easily be spread and that brushes never need to be scrubbed into the surface.
Please Note : These panels have an industrial finish and as a result often have slight marks, light scratches or imperfections. Keep in mind that either side of the panel can be used and priming may be necessary for a perfectly smooth base to work on.
