About Poplar Icon Boards

Panels for icons are usually made of solid wood, such as poplar. Solid oak keys are inserted in grooves cut into the back of each panel (recommended in boards 11 x14 in. and larger), across the wood grain, to minimize board deformation and warping. Most panels are constructed with a recessed area, called a kovcheg (Russian for ark), on the front surface of the icon. The kovcheg helps to reduce warping and spatially defines the icon's surface.

Iconofile Poplar boards are made from hand-selected, clear, kiln-dried stock traditionally cut and relieved. This is the board for a professional iconography. These boards are made according to a process that guarantees the right form and traditional style of iconography. Iconofile Poplar boards are ready for sizing and applying gesso.

Note: Key slots pictured in the schematic above apply only to boards with keys. See the Feature list of each item for more details.

About Birch Painting Panels

Birch panels can make your work easier and save you money. Birch panels are used by professional painters, but are ideal for student work. You do not have to buy expensive boards for your icon painting, you can use Birch panels from Iconofile.

Birch panels are different from other boards. They are not made from a single piece of wood, but from high quality Baltic birch plywood. The structure of birch plywood is laminated sheets of wood, so it avoids deformation and warping common with solid wood panels, and it is lighter in weight. Birch plywood allows you to make icon boards in nearly any shape and size--there are practically no constraints.

Iconofile Birch panels are made from hand-selected Baltic Birch plywood. The panels are cut, chamfers are made on all four edges of the face and entirely machine-sanded for a smooth final finish. Iconofile Birch panels are ready for sizing and applying gesso.
