The RayMar Portrait Panel is made with Claessens #13 double oil primed linen exclusively for oil paint. It is professional grade, woven to exacting standards, and ideal for portrait and figure work. It is the finest linen we carry. Claessens priming consists of applying synthetic glue which is less sensitive to humidity than hide glue. The coating consists of a double layer of glue to make it smooth and sturdy to resist acids in oil plants. It is sized with two layers of zinc white primer bound with linseed oil and one top coating of titanium white oil paint. With 57.9 TPI warp and 58.4 TPI weft at 10.47 ounces per square yard, 4 layers of priming and a finish coat the result is museum quality linen without equal. The RayMar Portrait Panel is now available in 5 packs!
The RayMar Panelis a professional quality painting panel. We mount our linens on 1/8 inch MDF through a commercial process with a pH neutral adhesive to bind the fabric and panel in a uniform way. Next, we cover the reverse side of the panel with a gray melamine finish. This creates an acid-free archival art board that resists warping and provides a permanent barrier against deterioration from moisture or mold. This process creates an affordable, museum-quality painting board for artists.
