It's the ultimate surface, expertly stretched by hand. The faultless, finest grade cloth is primed with highly pigmented Gesso and is beautifully responsive to every brushstroke. The traditional cotton canvas surface has a medium texture, ideal for use with oil and acrylic paints. Built for endurance, with solid spruce wood stretcher bars that are kiln-dried for strength and rigorously tested for warp-resistance. No other surface comes close.
