Affordable Excellence: Explore the Benefits of Trekell's Cradled Hardboard Panels

In response to the rising prices of Baltic birch, our primed hardboard panels offer an affordable alternative without compromising quality. With our pre-primed hardboard panels, you receive a ready-to-paint surface at a fraction of the cost compared to raw Baltic birch panels that require additional preparation.

Not only are these panels budget-friendly, but they also offer the same archival quality as our Baltic birch. Crafted from tempered, 1/8" boards, they are resistant to warping and edge-fraying. Each panel is meticulously sealed with Golden's GAC100 and hand-rolled with a gesso or oil ground finish. We take pride in building these panels, and we hope you'll enjoy painting on them as much as we do creating them.

Craftsmanship and Design: The Collaboration Behind Trekell's Hardboard Panels

Designed in collaboration with George H. Simkins, the father of Trekell artist Greg Simkins, our Cradled Hardboard Panels feature a Hardboard front panel and a basswood cradle. This unique combination balances sturdiness with clean minimalism, resulting in stunning wood panels. Our USA-based craftsmen use only the finest materials to achieve something extraordinary, and each panel is stamped with the Trekell/George H. Simkins logo as a seal of quality.

A Perfect Balance: Hardboard Front Panel and Basswood Cradle of Trekell's Panels

Trekell's Gesso Primed Hardboard - 7/8" and 1⅝" - Profile Panels are available in nine different sizes, ranging from 5" x 7" to 12" x 16". Supported by a durable basswood cradle measuring either 7/8" or 1⅝" deep, these art panels offer aesthetic appeal while providing structural stability against warping. The front of the panel is sealed with Golden GAC100, ensuring a reliable foundation for your artwork.

Golden GAC100 Seal: Ensuring Longevity and Surface Protection
