Belle Arti Gesso panels are handmade in Italy, and suitable for a wide variety of techniques including oil, acrylic, pencil, watercolour and ink.

The extremely stable 8mm thick poplar plywood base is finished with a very smooth, absorbent acrylic gesso surface. The fine surface is ideal for detailed work.

They are very absorbent so you may wish to use extra oil if using oil paint. May not be absorbent enough for use with egg tempera which usually needs genuine gesso (made with rabbit skin glue and whiting). If the surface isn't absorbent enough the egg tempera paint may lift off the first layer when you apply a second glaze.

Also available in boxes of 10 with an extra discount.

Review by Feefo
These gesso poplar panels are excellent and they are all exactly 1mm shorter than the nominal side size so ordering mouldings for frames is easy - for these, a 10x15cm frame.

The fine surface means that they can take fine detail in a way that makes canvas look like trying to paint a ploughed field.

Also, being a surface on a uniform wooden base, you can cut them down further if needed - a 10x15cm panel makes two 7.4x9.9cm panels that you can paint miniatures on - the surface is quite capable fo taking a 200 micron thick line of paint where necessary. (Posted on 10/11/2016)
