Using Cradled Panels!

As many of you know, I love to use cradled panels. In particular, I have been using the gesso (Gessobord) and clay board (Claybord) panels from Ampersand Art Supply. Shown is a picture of two custom (Claybord) panels created by Ampersand Art Supply to my specific specifications. The edges are taped off because I treating them with GAC 100 and gesso primer. But there is so much more you can do with them!

I would like to share with you a great article from Ampersand Art Supply on the Top 10 Ideas for Finishing Cradled Edges. From using stain, ink, polyurethane and acrylic paint to more textural effects like collage, cold wax, texture gels and gilding, there are almost endless ways in which to decorate the edges of your cradled panels.
