Magnetic board?

I’ve seen posts on Instagram of Ani students using a magnetic board that holds drawings and reference up with magnets. Looks super useful! I have a ton of magnets laying around and am getting annoyed with tape.

Anyone have any tips on where to get a board like that?

Hey Tim!

The ones we have here are just a thin piece of ply wood, a thin piece of sheet metal covered with a laminate. The edges are then simple rounded off and you’re good to go! I’ll see if we have specific thickness measurements anywhere.

Thanks, Anthony! I didn’t think of just putting some sheet metal on plywood—that would work perfectly!

What’s the laminate?

I’ll see if I get get the specific materials. But it’s just a flat black laminate–perhaps an acrylic?
