Now the papers that inspire artists' work can support it, too. Canson Art Boards feature a range of best-selling Canson and Arches papers on rigid, archival backing.
Canson Art Boards provide artists the benefits of a stiff, strong working surface û with Canson and Arches quality paper on top. It's an exciting innovation to add performance to our most popular papers û a complete range of boards for a variety of media and techniques, from illustration and comic art to drawing, watercolor and pastel. Each board is as rugged as it is beautiful, created to withstand the rigors of repeated watercolor washes or the pressure of building up pastel. Because Canson Art Boards are mounted on white, acid-free, lignin-free, archival conservation board, they are both durable and enduring.
Canson Art Boards are ready for framing without mounting, eliminating a step as well as the added expense. The art finished on acid free paper is displayed and protected on two-ply, archival Canson conservation board, making self-preservation simple. Buffered, without optical brighteners, and treated to resist mold, the board is compliant to ISO 9706, the standard for permanent paper.
BLACK DRAWING: Black Drawing Art Boards deliver a dramatic surface for pencil, chalk and gouache. Very finely textured, the paper is acid free, and highly resistant to light and fading.
