A lightweight, contemporary panel solution for artists. Innovative manufacturing process and unique registered design.
The design ensures the panels are dimensionally stable & geometrically accurate, with a virtually invisible joint between the painting face & cradle.
Fisher Wells created the seamless panel because as artists they were unhappy with the inherent problems that current commercial panels have.
Cradled or chassis panels generally use thin veneer plywood glued to a timber frame. Wood expands and contracts along its grain. In some circumstances this can cause cracking and delamination of paint films as they dry.
Fibreboards don’t have this grain problem. By making the entire panel from one piece of board, expansion and contraction rate issues are resolved.
These panels are ready for you to apply the ground of your choice, whether it be a traditional glue-size and oil ground, gesso sottile, acrylic gesso, shellac, Golden GAC100, etc. The panels can also be covered with Canvas, Linen, Watercolour papers and Collage.
Made in Melbourne.
These panels use ultra low emission EO grade fibreboard. Fisher and Wells use the best EU standard fibreboard made here in Australia from plantation grown softwoods.
