Poplar Art Boards

Poplar as a painting surface has been around for hundreds of years. Did you know that the Mona Lisa is painted on poplar.

Art Boards Australia Italian poplar art boards are made with A grade 6mm Italian poplar ply. The surface is beautifully smooth and is suitable for a wide variety of art mediums. The Poplar art board surface is bonded to a 32mm deep kiln dried pine frame creating a 38mm deep profile perfect for mounting in floating frame profiles. 

We make all of our painting panels in Melbourne Australia by hand to the highest standards possible. The 6mm poplar offers a rigid surface at a much lower weight compared to other surfaces of the same thickness creating a cradled painting panel that is much more comparable in weight to a stretched canvas.  

In addition to our listed standard sizes we can custom make just about any size that you would like. 

All of our timbers that we use are FSC certified sustainably sourced.
