I recently got the Dick blick art board and thought would give it a try. The surface is like canvas and it’s conveniently mounted in the back. I used my usual neocolors and Colored pencils on it and also added some Gold leaf and inks for fun. I found it really difficult to add layers on it because the colors kept rolling off. I had to be really careful not to touch the surface while working or I was pulling off a lot of pigment. Using the bristle brush did help increase saturation but only to a level. Also a brush on varnish pulled off more color! I think this board would be great for wetmedia but does not work for mixed media so much. That’s just my 2 cents!
