Ampersand - a successful United States company since 1994
Ampersand panels act on the very old tradition of panel painting and revitalize it. In 1994, the first panel produced was: The Claybord ™, developed as a high-quality hardboard painting surface with an acid-free clay surface. Many special panels were developed since. Their special surface coatings and formats are ideal for such varied techniques as oil and acrylic painting or pastel and watercolor painting. The quality of Ampersand has inspired the company to produce highly durable, archival-quality panels meeting the highest standards. Today Ampersand is popular in the US and enjoys growing world renown for their high-quality painting surfaces.
