Richeson Premium Pastel Gator Board ONLINE ONLY






The texture of this pastel surfaces is like no other. With an exquisite 'toothy' finish, pastels can be applied with ease as the surface grabs and holds the pigment, layer after layer, allowing the artist to achieve great depth in composition. This surface is also waterproof so the artist can apply water to soften the edges of the pastel without altering the surface. You can scrub around the colour with a rag or any pastel-blending product. and inks, gouache, acrylics, oils and even watercolours can be freely applied to compositions allowing the exploration of a wide range of techniques.
Gator Board is one of the toughest, most durable laminated foam panels on the market. Gator board panels are made from a durable core of rigid polystyrene foam bonded on both sides by resin impregnated wood fibre veneers. The result is a laminated foam panel with an exceptionally hard, smooth surface that resists dents, punctures and moisture while remaining very lightweight, making it ideal for plein air painting and for workshop artists.
