Artists’ DIY – Make Oil Painting Panels Yourself

Making Oil Painting Panels At Home Using Hardboard And Gesso

In today’s video, I show you how I make these DIY oil painting panels or boards myself. I also talk about 5 advantages of making and using such boards. 

In my post about Oil Painting Surfaces, I briefly talked about panels/boards that can be used for oil painting. Some people also call them gesso panels or gesso boards.

Advantages of making your own panels

1. Control on texture
2. Cost-effectiveness
3. Custom sizes 
4. Easy to dry 
5. Easy to ship

Happy painting!
