The Icarus Painting Board is a portable board designed to be used vertically on an easel (or a table easel) or horizontally on a desk. It is available in two sizes 16" x 22" and 22” x 28” and it features one large WARM ZONE.

For the first time in the industry, the Icarus Painting  Board features a very unique and ingenious way of holding the support (paper, canvas, panel) in place.

Powerful neodymium magnets (provided) will not only hold the artwork on the metal surface of the board but enable the artist to move it or rotate it freely. If used vertically, a strap on the back will secure the board to the easel. If used horizontally, four rubber feet will keep it slightly elevated from the desk.

With all the Icarus Boards one can actually work on a much larger piece than the size of the board itself. On the picture on the left, you can see a work in progress on loose canvas that measures 24” x 48”.

The artist will turn the heater ON and set it at the desired temperature for mixing pigments, blending, burnishing and reworking. The heater should be OFF and the board surface at room temperature for line drawing, layering, detailing and finishing touches.
