Re: what is the best wood to paint on?
I like either maple plywood or ash plywood. Can be found at the HD up on University. Lowes on Fruitville may also have it.
Found this on MDO
- Medium Density Overlay (MDO) board is a wood panel often used in the sign making and cement forming industries. It is usually made of plywood, coated with outer layers of resin-impregnated kraft paper. Phenolic, urea, or melamine resins are the common resins used on the paper overlays. Because of the impermanent nature of the kraft papers used, MDO is not considered a suitable material for use in permanent artworks. It has been suggested that a home-made museum quality MDO board could be produced by laminating plywood with urethane soaked rag papers. Let us know if you try!
Another thought would be to use hardboard and skin it with rag paper. I have done that before and it works fairly well overall.
