  • oil on birch plywoodApproveRejectUn-ApproveSubscribeUn-Unsubscribe
    Question asked 2016-12-23 15:50:16 ... Most recent comment 2016-12-23 16:39:00
    Is it archival? I have painted on quarter inch birch plywood and like it a lot. i like the mid tone, surface, absorbency, durability, light weight, price and it has never shown a problem. I sometimes do not even seal it but paint right onto it, never a problem so far. Some opine that over time the oils will do this and that especially without priming, much like with canvas. Some say ue "marine" plywood only. Anybody?

  • EditDeleteModerator AnswerWe actually have just had a very similar question regarding birch ply which I just answered so I recommend you read the response there. As for learning more about the pros and cons of plywood please feel free to read over our section on ply supports in our "Rigid Supports" document in the Resources section.
