A professional range of back stapled pre-stretched artist canvas manufactured to the highest quality standards with traditional 100% linen cloth with medium grain surface. Stretched by hand for best tension and tailored corners. Ample canvas on the back for restretching. Professional frame construction with kiln-dried, beveled stretcher bars. 1-5/8 inch deep, staple free edges can be painted to display finished paintings with or without a frame. Triple coated with acid free sizing and two coats of highly pigmented acrylic primer ( 12 oz/sq. yd. primed ). Ideal for all techniques, including heavier applications of colour. Balanced absorbency and tooth prevents sinking of oil colours and improves adhesion. Excellent for use with oil, acrylic, and alkyd colour.
