The hardboard: sturdy, durable, reliable. When you need the least amount of flex from your surface, it’s the only answer. However, while these boards are known for their firmness, they never feel bulky. That’s a quality inherent in every dimension, be it the small yet resilient 5”x7”, commanding 30”x30”, or the four others falling in between. Whichever version, each hardboard’s front is sealed with Golden’s GAC100 before the finish is applied, giving you that professional edge. This particular hardboard is primed with Gamblin Oil Painting Ground. This revolutionary primer is not only safe to use, but brings out the best of your oil paints. Due to its “closed” surface, it adheres to oils instead of penetrating them, forming physical (mechanical) and molecular (chemical) bonds. This gives Gamblin Oil Ground a unique non-absorbent property, one that helps keep the refined linseed binder in oil colors together with the pigment. In short, it improves paint adhesion and intensifies color saturation.
