My Favorite Surface to Paint on

MY FAVORITE SURFACE TO PAINT ON

Ampersand Hardbord (yes, it is spelled correctly) is my favorite surface to paint on. It is not canvas, rather it is a wooden panel treated to accept paint. It is durable and looks beautiful on a wall. In this post, I will demonstrate how simple it is to correct the painting when it has been damaged after the painting is already finished.

I recently finished a contract with a gallery in Ft. Myers.  When I was removing my artwork from the gallery, I noticed that the lower righthand  corner of “Manatee Motherhood” had all of the paint missing.  The gallery wasn’t liable for any damages which might occur while on the wall at the store. The following steps are what I done to correct the damage.

  1. The first thing you need to do is make sure that there is no paint residue. Sand the board to remove any rough edges and renew the smooth surface.

2.  Next, paint a layer of gesso so the paint will adhere to the  Ampersand Hardbord. This step will be important so the damaged piece of the painting will be the same level as the rest of the  rest of the undamaged piece.

3.  Now the painting is ready to paint over. That is all there is to it. This is why Ampersand Hardbord is my favorite surface to paint on. It is extremely durable and if it is damaged, it is easy to correct to it’s original artistic state!
