Encore erasable WaterMedia Art Boards are the solution to the age-old problems of dealing with the permanence and complexity of watercolor painting.
Encore is a completely erasable, flat, textured panel with a special coating that performs similarly to cold pressed, hot-pressed or rough watercolor paper. It is completely unique to the market and is perfect for artists looking for an forgiving, sturdy, flat and textured watercolor surface. It is acid free, non-yellowing and archival, available in assorted sizes, and easily made permanent with a framed or frameless presentation.
The solid structure prevents the surface from being accidentally dented, torn or damaged by mishandling. It also is more portable than mounted watercolor paper, and provides a firm, consistent surface enabling smooth blending of colors, fine brushwork and minute detail.
Encore's key features are:
Completely Erasable: Watercolor paints and pigments are easily and completely erased - even when dry - returning the surface back to white by simply using a clean, damp microfiber cloth or Q-Tip.
Ready to Paint: No preparation is required! No wetting, taping, pinning or clipping to a backing board before painting. Encore stays flat and will not warp or bulge when water is applied to the surface. It will stand by itself on any easel or on a flat surface.
Portable: Lightweight and easily carried for plein air painting outside the studio.
Easy to Use: No planning is needed! Erasability eliminates the fear of mistakes, which promotes creativity.
