Russian birch, uncradled birch panels are non cradled sheets of birch wood, with a natural finish, no gesso, 3mm thick. They are great for experimenting, practice, and studies as well as for finished work that you frame afterwards. Use an uncradled birch panel for painting with encaustics, acrylics, collage, resins, wood burning, as well as assemblage and more. Anything you can imagine. If you love the wood grain, try priming your wood panel with a clear gesso. Uncradled birch panels should always be primed to be used with oil paints or other solvent based paint.

These unprimed uncradled birch 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 uncradled birch panel.
