Wood Art Panels

Wood art panels are versatile surfaces for everything from painting to wood burning. You can use them as your surface for your string art or you can create decorative wood panels for your walls. But did you know wood decor panels are a great surface for a variety of paints as well? Their textured yet smooth surface makes them ideal for holding mediums well. They also work particularly well for techniques such as acrylic pour painting because their surface will not bow under the weight of excess paint.

What is a painting on wood called? A painting done on wood is referred to as a panel painting. Panels of wood have been used for paintings done with the aide of easels for centuries. Stretched canvases became widely available in the 16th century, which is when panel painting began to became less popular. However, the durability of modern wood panels makes them ideal for a wide range of arts and crafts projects.

How do you hang wood panel art? The method for hanging wood panel art can vary based upon the type of panel used. If the panel is cradled, it can be hung using a couple of screws, suitable for the weight of the panel, anchored into the wall. Various hooks and loops may be purchased for anchoring on the back of a panel. If the artwork is done on a panel of sufficient depth, and you want it to hang flush with the wall, you can use a router to cut a slot or two into the back of your panel wide and deep enough for the head of the screws or nails you will use to anchor it.

What is a cradled wood panel? Cradled wood panels are reinforced and supported by a wooden frame on the back. This frame provides resistance to the warping and cracking that can happen to wood panels for painting over time. Additionally, the cradle provides an easy way to hang the finished art piece without the need for framing or additional hardware.

Wood panels for artists are ideal surfaces for many mediums. Whether you’re creating a detailed landscape painting or making a detailed string art piece, you’ll find the perfect sized panel for your project. Each panel is designed to be lightweight and durable so even if you wanted to take your project on the go, you’ll be able to work without feeling burdened by your artwork.
