First time customer and new to RayMar Art? Try a sample RayMar Panel before placing an order.
The RayMar Panel is professional, museum quality painting panel. We mount cotton and linen on 1/8 inch and 1/16 inch (Feather Lite Panels) MDF through our own in-house 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 panel 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.
Order one of several types of sample packs to experience the five different RayMar Panel surfaces. The sample packs are an easy, affordable way to decide which texture suits your painting style. Our five textures include:
Medium Landscape Cotton - Designed for landscape painting. Made of 100% cotton duck, the absorbent texture grabs the paint for an opaque effect and also works well with water-based oil paint.
Smooth Portrait Cotton - Designed for detail painting. Made of a cotton/poly blend, our smooth texture canvas permits more paint manipulation and produces a translucent effect similar to oil primed linen.
Claessens #15 Single Primed Linen - Suitable for professional portrait, landscape, and modern work. Made of 100% Belgian linen, the single primed linen is sized twice with a zinc white primer bound with linseed oil and a top coating of titanium white oil paint.
Claessens #15 Double Primed Linen - Suitable for professional portrait, landscape, and modern work. Made of 100% Belgian linen, the double primed linen comes with an additional coating of titanium white for the artist seeking an ultra smooth surface.
Claessens #13 Double Primed Linen - The RayMar Portrait Panel is the ideal surface for fine portraits and figure work. With 57.9 TPI warp and 58.4 weft at 11.35 ounces per square yard, Claessens #13 is the finest linen we carry and the favorite of professional artists.
