After years of trying to find a linoleum product that would be easier for artists of all ages to carve on, we have developed an innovative material that seems to be the answer and it can be worked mounted or unmounted. Working with traditional lino tools, it cuts like butter. It leaves beautiful, clean edges and works well on curves and tight corners. It is really an answer for those who have wrestled with tough or hard linoleum in the past. One of its real advantages is that it has a long shelf life - as much as ten times longer than that of traditional lino - so it will stay workable for much longer.
• Cuts like butter
• Creates clean edges
• Has a long shelf life
• Unmounted is carvable on both sides

Richeson spent two years in the development of our Gesso Panels, resulting in a strong warp-resistant tempered panel. These panels are coated with a high quality acrylic gesso using a two coat waterfall system for the perfect lightly toothy finished surface. This surface will not separate from the panel but bonds perfectly, making it the perfect panel for all painters – professional as well as students.
Panel Sizes: 4 in x 4 in, 6 in x 12 in, 8 in x 8 in, 8 in x 10 in, and 9 in x 12 in.

Hardboard, which is also called high-density fiberboard, is a type of engineered wood. It is similar to particle board in the way it is manufactured, but it is much denser, stronger and harder. Unlike particle board, hardboard will not split or crack. 1/8" thick medium-density panels are perfect as a painting surface, mixing palette or for taping down watercolor paper. Value-priced panels make this product especially attractive for use by university and art college students.
