Russian birch panels are non cradled sheets of birch wood, natural finish – no gesso – 6mm. Uncradled wood panels are great for experimenting, practice, studies or for finished work that you frame afterwards. Use them for encaustics, acrylics, collage, resins, wood-burning, assemblage – anything you can imagine. If you love the wood grain, prime with clear gesso. Birch panels should always be primed to be used with oil paints or other solvent based mediums.

These unprimed wood panels are appropriate for acrylic or oil painting. Priming the panel with a coat or two of gesso, painting ground or pva size is recommended before use, and is especially important for use with oil or solvent based paints. Use a clear gesso to show off the beautiful wood grain or use a watercolor ground for use with watercolours or gouache.

Priming:

Often, priming with a water-based medium will result in the wood grain swelling and creating a rough “burred” surface. This is normal. For best results, apply one coat of gesso, pva size or Golden GAC 100 and allow to dry. Once the first coat is dry, sand the surface with a relatively fine sandpaper. Once you reach your desired smoothness, wipe off any residue with a damp cloth. You can start your painting at this point, however we recommend applying at least one more coat of gesso, especially for use with oil paint. You may continue this process until you achieve the desired surface on your birch panel.
