These new premium quality 100% linen canvases are primed with a transparent clear gesso primer. This clear primer allows the beauty of the natural linen to shine through, and they are ready to use as sold. You can also add your own coloured primer over the top if you wish.
Ideal for both oils and acrylics, the surface of the canvas is triple primed and ready to be painted onto straight away. The linen is stretched onto high quality 18mm deep pine stretchers and is stapled on the back to leave the sides of the canvas free for painting.
Sizes included in the assorted pack are:
If you've every bought pre-stretched canvases you may have been suprised to find a small bag of wooden pieces attached to the back of the canvas stretcher. Many people wonder what they are actually for! These wedges can be inserted into the slots in the back of your canvas stretcher, and are used to tighten up the canvas fabric to stop it from loosening. The tension of your canvas will depend on how firmly and deeply you insert the wedges into the slots.
