We don’t often use plastic, even when it’s biodegradable; however, these biodegradable plastic painting boards are much easier for children to move and use than traditional wooden painting boards. Wood is heavy! And…we really feel they are better for watercolors.
These are just the best for wet-on-wet watercolor painting from our experience. The wet paper adheres nicely to the board and doesnt shift around like it can on wood. Dry paper can be taped, if needed, with our special paper tape. They have rounded corners and a matte-like surface that helps the wet paper and paper tape adhere.
MULTI-USE AND EASY TO CLEAN
These paint boards can be used for dry or wet paper. They easily wipe clean and do not need to dry out more than a few minutes, if even that.
They can double as a modeling dough or clay board to protect your table and are great underneath young children who like to color or are learning to use block crayons for those times the crayons sweep off the page!
They are also a helpful way to contain kinetic sand by keeping it off a table surface. Just lift and tilt the board over the kinetic sand bin and voila! All back where it needs to be. (We learned the hard way!)
WHAT SIZES DO YOU OFFER
We offer four sizes, but they do require a unique shipping box size; therefore, these boards are exempt from free shipping.
Painting Board Sizes are 3mm thick, which is approximately 0.12” (0.11811”), and have the following dimensions:
WHICH PAINTING BOARD SIZE SHOULD I GET?
Not sure which board to get? We like the 15.75” x 21.65” for wet-on-wet watercolor painting when we are painting with our children.
We often use the same size for coloring with our preschoolers and kindergarteners, but tend to use the smaller 11.81''x15.75'' for clay and modeling dough, as well as coloring with older children.
The remaining larger sizes are both great for adults or older children who wish to create larger pieces.
Standard USA shipping, only. Allow up to two weeks for the boards to ship to you.
HOW TO COMPOST
Although our Painting Boards are made of recycled material and biodegradable plastic, it is only biodegradable in a commercial compost facility, not a home bin.
