K2 Aluminium art panels are an anodised aluminium surface that is ready-prepared for use with most types of painting media including oil, acrylic and ink as well as some drawing media like pencil and pen. No priming is necessary as the paint will adhere very well to the metal. Either side of the panel can be used and the panels are a perfect solution for those who like to paint on ultra smooth hard surfaces. This smooth surface means that paint can easily be spread or be primed with any universal primer should a different colour be preferred.
Unlike supports like canvases or wood panels, aluminium panels will not release impuritys over time and barely react to changes in humidity and temperature. The conservation benefits and archival properties of the metal mean that aluminium art panels can easily be stored in damp studios where traditional painting surfaces would warp. Areas on the aluminium painting panels can also be left exposed, as the material won’t tarnish due to its resistance to oxidation. The lightweight nature of the aluminium panels makes them ideal for large artworks which need to be transported.
