Icon Boards

We have recently stated making icon panels and boards.  Icon board's are made in the traditional way using linden wood (lime), muslin and gesso and are oak braced when over 30cm in width. 

Icon panels are made from 18mm plywood and are not braced. Both panels and boards are available gessoed or in plain wood.

We make traditional gesso from rabbit skin glue and whiting. Gesso is applied by hand initially to build up in multiple layers, sanding in between. The last layers are sprayed and sanded to provide an alabaster smooth surface.

Traditional gesso provides the perfect surface for oil or egg tempera.
