The Best Quality Wooden Art Boards and Panels in Sydney


You have probably realised by now that the team at Encaustic Art Supplies AU takes art supplies very seriously. We want to maximise the beauty of your art work and in doing so we believe in providing the artist with the highest quality wooden art boards and wooden panels available in the Sydney area.


We here at Encaustic believe in providing you with the best quality boards and panels at the most convenient price. Our birch boards and panels come in a range of different sizes and we will custom build to your required dimensions. We also carry Ampersand™ encausticbords.


Ampersand™ Encausticbord

Encausticbord has a ready to use surface formulated for the unique demands of encaustic painting and mixed media. Ampersand’s sealed Hardbord panel comes pre coated with Encaustic gesso to form a bright, smooth and velvety surface that is ready to use with the ancient technique of encaustic painting. The ground is not only heat resistant and highly absorbent, but also holds tight to layers of wax and collage without the fear of cracking or separation. 


Our cradled boards

Our cradled plywood boards are sturdy and durable. The 3ply ready-made boards are perfect for immediate needs, and the 5ply superior boards are built to order and requires a turn around time of anything from two days to two weeks depending on size and work load.
