For those who use dibond I'm interested to know how easily damaged the panels are. I've not ever handled one so I may be completely underestimating how robust they are. I'm thinking of things such as:
- Bends: Through handling or mishap.
- Edges or corners: Knocking the edges moving your panel around. A painting on hardboard panel once fell from my easel and landed on the corner, for instance. I managed to repair it with a woodworker trick. A stretched canvas probably would have been ok with that fall.
- Dents: Something hitting your painting and causing a dent. Unlikely, I know, unless you have people living in your house.
asked whether I've thought about using it. My response was something like the Monty Python sketch about good 'woody words' vs. horrible 'tinny words'. "Sort of PVC-y sort of word." But I'm curious now. Good to question your own assumptions about things.
