A range of canvases is available from the tightest weave, finest tooth quadruple primed Belgian “handkerchief” linen to robust heavy toothed linens ideal for large format works.
These are the only pre-primed canvases that are double sized before priming.
A specially formulated acrylic sizing is applied to every canvas twice to completely isolate the fabric from the acids contained in the primer and the paints themselves. The canvas then receives from one to six coats of either oil based, or acrylic universal primer.
The formulation of its oil-based primer has the feel, strength, adhesion, luminosity and absorption of a traditional white lead primer without the toxicity. The acrylic universal primer is a “best of both worlds” acrylic primer that has many of the absorbent characteristics of an oil-based primer.
Three different linens according to the weave.
Portrait:Very tight weave and beautiful even grain.Excellent for portraits and detailed artworks.
