ACEO-sized panels for oil paintings?

Can anyone recommend pre-cut, gessoed panels (like Ampersand Gessobord or Richeson's tinted panels) in ACEO size? The only thing I can find is Ampersand's ACEO-sized Encuasticbord panels, but I'm not sure they're appropriate for oil paint.

I guess I could buy MDF and cut and gesso it myself, but I'm willing to pay to have someone else do that work for me.

Thanks in advance!

I've never seen panels in that size, plenty of canvases but not panels. Did you check Dick Blicks?

Re: ACEO-sized panels for oil paintings?

Thanks for your reply. I did check Blick's; all I found were the Ampersand Encaustic board I mentioned above.

But I'd settle for a premade ACEO-sized canvas, if it were attached to a panel or some such. Where might I look for that?

I'm sorry I meant stretched canvas not on panels.

I did find some panels here on Ebay. I haven't ordered them though so I can't vouch for quality or customer service.

I use Ampersand's ACEO encaustic panels and they work fine for oils. The surface is much more absorbent so a couple coatings of your preferred gesso is optional.

I wanted to give a belated thanks to jaka44. Those Ampersand panels do work. Thanks.

Re: ACEO-sized panels for oil paintings?

I tried soho's aceo pannels and didn't like them. They worked ok for a while but one day we had a rainy day at a show and some got wet and fell apart.
I sell mine and a lot of people like to collect them like baseball cards. They don't like the thicker panels because they don't fit in the baseball card trading books.
I tried watercolor paper and I like it for watercolor and most mediums but for my oils, oil would go through the back. so I found oil paper I think at Dick Blicks and I really like it. I get the 9 by 12 tablet and can cut a page into 10 aceo's

You can buy ATC size canvas with sticky back that could be mounted on matboard. Check Jerry's

Re: ACEO-sized panels for oil paintings?

Actually there are ACEO panels available. They are made by Ampersand marketed under the name of Stampbord. Eighth-inch thick, they are an ACEO sized version of their Claybord panels. If you haven't painted on Claybord there is a learning curve, as the surface is very absorbent until you get a couple of layers of paint on it or prime it first with gesso. I use these panels for all my miniatures and they are primo, especially if you paint in the classical technique using glazes. Here is a link to them:
