Details

Wet-on-wet watercolor painting is one of the central aspects of early Waldorf art instruction, and our Painting Board is one of the tools that will make this craft easier. The wet watercolor paper "sticks" to the board, so it doesn't shift around as your child explores color. This durable board stays useful as your child begins to pursue other interests. A wonderful alternative to other boards made of plastic or finished with toxic chemicals, all it needs is a little extra care to make it last.

Sturdy little board

by -

So far, so good. We bought the smaller board for my daughter's painting projects, to protect the tabletop. It seems to do the job. It is smooth and has no sharp edges. I'm looking forward to taking it on road trips for coloring projects in the car.

We use it for painting, puzzles on the carpet, building block towers on the carpet, play scenes, etc.

These boards are so multi-purpose in our home. My 3 year old has done many puzzles on them and we use them for painting outside and inside too. They are sturdy for block towers and great for play scene construction. Glad I bought them:)

looks nice but a little bit pricey for a sanded piece of plywood.

We purchased two of the large painting boards to use for wet-on-wet watercolor painting for our daughters. As another reviewer noted, it does seem a little pricey for a piece of wood, but the boards do a good job of holding the paper in place while the girls paint. The large would be too large to use as a lap board on the go (our girls are 3 and 5), but they can easily fit the paper, paint jars, and sponge. After the first use, they were very stained by the watercolor paint, but maybe it would have been a little more resistant to staining if we had treated it with a beeswax polish first.
