Finding the right priced Stretched Canvas

By Mary Porter Subscribe to RSS | June 16th 2012 | Views:

One of an artist’s essential tools is a canvas on which to paint. A stretched canvas is where many artists begin their work of art.

Finding the right stretched canvas is important, and most artists will have a variety of sizes in stock for different pieces. As well as canvas size, the depth of a stretched canvas is also important, dictating how far the canvas sticks out from the mounting wall. Deep canvases give the artist more space to paint and can also create a 3D effect. A stretched canvas is considered narrow if it is around 1.7cm deep. Extending to 3.7cm deep makes for an XL deep stretched canvas. Generally speaking, the deeper the stretched canvas, the more expensive supplies are.

A stretched canvas can be made from a variety of materials including linen and cotton. A stretched canvas will see the material stretched over a wooden frame. The materials is then secured via staples to the wooden frame and primed, ready for use. Oils and acrylics can be used on a stretched canvas, and the priming that is carried out to the material avoids any of the paint seeping through to the back of the stretched canvas. It’s vital that a stretched canvas is acid free.

A stretched canvas can be expensive and for many artists, especially art students, the need to find cheap canvases which offer high quality is important. Choosing to bulk-buy a stretched canvas may reduce your price as you can buy a carton of canvases and use them over a period of time.
