Would you mind answering a question I asked earlier and either missed or didn't get the answer to? What kind of wood is that panel made of?

Sorry, Bill, I've been sick for a while and I'm just now getting around to your question.

The panel is made of ordinary masonite, primed with gesso. I'm trying different methods of applying the gesso. I used to prime only the front of the panel, but have read that priming all over helps the panel maintain its stability better over time, so that is what I do now.

I cut most of my own panels, 1/8" masonite for small work, 1/4" for larger pieces.

HOWEVER... I'm thinking of working larger, again, so I may start using stretched linen at some point.

Thanks much.
