I work mainly with acrylic artist paints and sometimes latex house paints on various surfaces. I think the support I like most is birch plywood panels which I prepare myself. I also paint on stretched canvas panels, fiberboard, and canvas sheets (Fredrix brand). Lately I've been using surface abrasion to take back paint layers. The hard surface of the wood panels seems to work best for this process.
I have one painting in particular that shows the effect of surface abrasion. I have one other piece that I haven't yet photographed. I'll put it in a separate post at a later date. Anyway here's the one I've completed using this technique.
