Why do artists love our products? 

“I’ve been a fan of Multimedia Artboard for over 25 years. I have used this board for almost every medium I work with in oils, pencil, acrylic, watercolor, charcoal-everything. Pastel Artist Panels accept all forms of pastels including pastel pencils. The surface has a delicate response and is an excellent support for working in pastel techniques that require layering. ~ Bill Creevy

"I’ve been using Multimedia Artboard for over​ ​15 years and immediately fell in love with it! ​ Now, the Pastel Artist Panels are my surface of choice and what I recommend to my students. What drew me to it was its capacity to be wet​​ without buckling. This durable light weight archival surface enables me to use expressive brush work in under paintings, and then apply many delicate layers of pastels without filling​ the tooth. I love the way the white slightly textured surface receives and holds the intensity of a watercolor under wash. It also has enough tooth and texture to do a pastel sketch and then dissolve it with water or alcohol to create the fluidity and set it into the paper.  The pure joy of painting on this exquisite board will surely be a lifetime of experiences! ~ Susan Nicholas Gephart

"Multimedia Artboards are my "go to” for Plein Air. I do an enormous amount of traveling and these products have really afforded me freedom and the ability to travel much lighter. I highly recommend them!" Stephanie Birdsall
