Artists that work in embroidery needlework or oil painting well understand the importance of using top quality canvas stretchers. These bars are used to tighten as well as smooth out the surface of the canvas so that it becomes easy to showcase the artwork, or perform the needlework.

Things to Know Before Buying Stretcher Bars

Make sure that the Art stretcher bars purchased by you are made out of top quality wood and possess smooth edges, which will neither warp nor rot. Bars with smooth edges, preferably slightly rounded, are extremely helpful in decreasing pressure on the canvas edges, hence saving it from getting torn. Canvas stretchers and bars are widely used by the artists for preserving their fine artwork. It is important to buy only good quality stretcher bars as the rot can harm your canvas and warping can cause uneven stress on the surface of your painting.

Using Art Stretcher Bars for Showcasing Your Artwork

Four stretcher bars are used at one time for creating a wooden frame of rectangular shape. These bars can be put together on your own or you can go for already assembled canvas stretchers, which make your job easier. All you need to do is to place your canvas onto the stretcher and start stapling by using a staple gun. The canvas can also be tacked down to the stretcher bars. Anyhow, it is a good idea to put some staples on all the four sides. The use of staple is to make sure that the canvas surface remains perfectly taut and smooth.

Be A Little Careful!

The entire process needs to be carried out carefully as your canvas can easily get damaged during the event. Once the errand of attaching the canvas to Art stretcher bars gets over, you are now ready to hang up your masterpiece for display. If you prefer, a wooden can be used for placing this artwork. In fact, the choice is entirely yours. There are plenty of online portals that offer premium quality stretcher bars in a wide variety of size options. You can pick some of the best bars at highly competitive prices.
