Our Primed Birchwood Panels are primed with Encaustry Encaustic Gesso.
It allows us to omit the initial beeswax "primer" layers. You can start with a surface that is ready for a huge variety of other media before layering on the wax such as soft pastel, photos, charcoal and watercolors.
These panels are ideal for mixed media and allow for the use of encaustic medium and heat.
The larger sizes are reinforced to handle the weight of the wax.
