Canvas and how it’s made and how it can be used

Canvas is a widely used material in our current world, it’s used in many ways like being used for tents or sails and is even used in the obvious subject being art for paintings and also is used for printing on to were you would find having an image printed on canvas or a design of some sort.

Canvas as we know is used for artists and also canvas printers and that’s the main topic I would like to cover here, basically canvas is a material made up of cotton or linen and is woven together to create a hard fabric. The inkjet canvas that you come across that is used for printing on and is a mixture of polyester and cotton mixed together to create a more better surface for the ink to be absorbed when the print head sprays its digital ink on to it.

The canvas texture is an amazing thing in its won and I think it’s not really appreciated as it should be because the canvas its self is an artwork let alone the artwork that goes over the top of it, normally when you buy a canvas for painting on you will find that it will be stretched over a real wooden stretcher bar frame and this allows the canvas to be stretched so that it is very tight and taught for painting on or drawing on and now that the canvas is very tight you don’t have to worry about it going a little loose, even if it does you should be supplied with some wedges to knock in the frame on the back to tighten the canvas up which is a marvelous thing in its self ad just shows how flexible the canvas really can be.

Early canvas back in the day was made of linen and would have looked more like a brownish fabric color rather than being the bright white canvas you see today as canvas has been around for many decades and I would say that its reaching its peak which is a really positive way to look at the amazing fabric and if you put your mind to it you can number quite a few different things that canvas is being used for today, a few more examples would be marquees and even backpacks are made from this material, would you even believe that it’s also associated with canoes to. Wow now that’s something not many people know but let’s not stray away from the fact that printing is a very beautiful thing and the combination of ink and this beautifully made material together creates just what we are all about and that passion and inventiveness and I just love that about this world stopping great fabric. And the good thing about the material is that once it’s made in its best and rare format it lasts for you for years if you give it the loving and tender care that is truly deserves.
