Masterpiece Double-Sided Vinyl Hard Core Substrate Art Panel for mixed media and alcohol inks.
Masterpiece® Alcohol Ink Art Panels™ offer a great hard-core working surface for Alcohol Inks and Acrylic Paints.
These bright white panels offer more control over your artwork than traditional papers currently available on the market. A non-porous vinyl is mounted on both sides of a solid MDF wood core, so there are two paintable sides.
We have a wide range of sizes - and a starter kit with 3 x Masterpiece Art Panels combined with 3 x Pinata Alcohol Inks - click here to see the set.
There are tiny peaks and valleys on the surface giving it a slight texture. There is also a pearlescent shimmer effect due to the way the light reflects of the peaks and slight shadows are created in the tiny valleys. This gives you more control over your work as the ink doesn't flow as much. If you want more of a flow, adding blending solution or 91% Isopropyl alcohol will help. The inks do not dry as fast, giving you more open time on your artwork.
If you do need to speed up the drying time using a heat gun will do the trick. The vinyl can take the heat, just make sure to keep the heat gun moving around, not staying in one area!
When you have finished, apply a layer of varnish, or sealer, then apply a UV protectant. You can also add a coating of epoxy resin which can transform your artwork! The combination of alcohol inks and resin make the colours pop, adds depth, and produce a long lasting piece with a glossy finish.
These are for use with alcohol inks, acrylic paints and mixed media. When used with alcohol inks, each layer reacts with the previous one and the ink floats on the surface therefore it is easily to lift or wipe.
All panels are 3mm (1/8") thick.
