Russian Style Gesso Board Full Size:11"x14" Inside Size:8.5"x11" (No braces)
Russian Style Icon boards are made from high quality, solid linden wood (Thickness16/18") with pine braces. Layers of natural gesso and water are applied for a resistant finish. The “gesso” contains the natural products only.
Solid pine braces inserted in grooves cut into the back of each board across the wood grain, to minimize board deformation and warping. All panels and board have linen under the gesso.
Hand-selected linden wood, kiln-dried, traditionally cut and relieved.
Constructed with a recessed area, called a “kovcheg” on the front surface of the icon.
Boards are Gessoed and have linen under the gesso.
The Russian Style boards not gessoed on the sides.
Solid pine braces inserted in grooves cut into the back of each board across the wood grain.
The “gesso” contains the natural products only. The marble dust, chalk, water and gelatin. We use distilled water only because the simple water contains metals, salt and other chemical elements.
All of the boards are manufactured in USA , and are produced with a unique recipe of natural gesso. Mostly for egg tempera and acrylic uses.
Every board comes with a full time warrantee and a quick delivery.
