  • Cold press boards are perfectly textured to hold art media wihout pigments flaking off.
  • Hot press boards are extra smooth to provide unparalleled sharpness for pen and marker.
  • Acid-free surfaces help preserve your best work for a lifetime.

Ultra-Black Mounting Boards

  • New and improved, it's the blackest black board available.
  • Perfect as a high contrast photography mounitng board.
  • Crescent's solid ultra-black board is smooth on one side for mounting artwork and photos and textured on the other to accept pastels, chalk and acrylic paint.

ART BOARD ENHANCEMENTS

Surface
Crescent art boards do not have surface roughness and orange peel typical of lesser quality art boards. The new surface improves pen and marker performance.

Whiter Core
The whiter core will not distort the color of the surface papers. Board surfaces are brihter and whiter, with less show-through and blotches common with lesser quality boards.
