  • Winsor & Newton Pro-stretcher™

Stretched to perfection

It's the ultimate surface, expertly stretched by hand. The faultless, finest grade linen is primed with highly pigmented Gesso and is beautifully responsive to every brushstroke. The new Winsor & Newton pro-stretcher™ creates precision tension that you can control. The linen canvas surface has a medium texture, ideal for use with oil and acrylic paints.

Why Choose Linen Canvas?
Linen is strong and durable, and remains the preferred surface for many artists but it is expensive. It is made from the fibres of the flax plant and top quality flax is harvested mainly in Western Europe. If you want your painting to last then a linen canvas is a sound investment. The threads that make up linen, known as the warp and weft threads, weigh the same, which means they are less prone to expansion or contraction due to moisture. 

Linen retains its natural oils, which helps to preserve the fibre’s flexibility and stops the canvas from going brittle. It is also regarded as having a more ‘natural’ weaved finish than cotton.

Because of its strength linen holds up to a heavy painting hand and does not become slack as easily as cotton canvas.

Built for endurance, with solid  heavy-duty pine wood stretcher bars that are kiln-dried for strength and rigorously tested for warp-resistance. No other surface comes close.
