“Multimedia Artboard has been important to my studio and teaching practice for many years as an excellent substrate for oil paint. The techniques I use involve building up and working back into multiple layers of cold wax medium mixed with oil, and the surface holds up perfectly to aggressive scraping, digging, and solvent use. Because I attend numerous artist residencies and teaching situations overseas, I also value Multimedia Artboard for its light weight and ease of transport. I can stack finished paintings in my luggage where they take up very little space, and once I am home they can easily be mounted on wood panels if I wish. I use the product in all my workshops for the same reason and students appreciate its reasonable cost and how easy it is to take their work back home.”
