Value of Plastics as a Painting Support

3 thoughts on “Value of Plastics as a Painting Support”

  1. Any experimentation with 3D printed painting supports? I work on expensive honeycomb aluminum that is primed and acrylic gessoed properly, but would like something even better. The perfect painting support is super lightweight, extremely durable with corners that don’t bust easily, deterioration-proof (archival), rigid, no off-gassing, can be cut on a table saw, stable bonding to gesso and paint.

    For large paintings like 5’x7′, I imagine a panel being reinforced with something lightweight that functions like rebar.
